Arrest in alleged baby beating

Christina O'Haver, The Union Democrat /

A Jamestown man faces child cruelty charges for allegedly abusing his infant daughter, who is clinging to life at an Oakland hospital.

Kevin Michael Boehmer, 26, was arrested Sunday at Sonora Regional Medical Center, where he'd taken his daughter about 9:50 a.m. because she was having difficulty breathing.

Hospital staff noticed several old bruises and injuries around the child's neck and chest and reported it to the authorities, said Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt. Jeff Wilson.

The girl, 3 months old, was airlifted to Children's Hospital and Research Center Oakland. She's not expected to survive, Wilson said Monday.

Boehmer recently moved to Tuolumne County from Washington, where the child's mother is incarcerated on child cruelty charges, Wilson said.

Boehmer was still in custody Tuesday morning in lieu of $100,000 bail.
