A Jersey City teen mother and her boyfriend have been charged with beating her defenseless infant son so badly that they fractured his arm, leg, collarbone and and multiple ribs, authorities said.

Omayra M. Medina, 19, and Delfin I. Castillo, 21, are charged with aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child. They made their initial court appearances on Nov. 9 and were ordered not to have any contact with the child.

According to the criminal complaint, Medina and Castillo brought the child, who was 3 months old at the time, to the Jersey City Medical Center on March 23 for a chest x-ray to check for pneumonia. But medical staff at the hospital found multiple rib fractures and bruising on the boy's chest and back, the complaint said.

 

Medina and Castillo were interviewed and both said they were the sole caretakers of the child, but they denied causing the injuries and said they did not know how the injuries occurred, the complaint said. 

The child, who is now 11 months old, was evaluated at Audrey Hepburn Children's House in Hackensack and doctors found that the boy had signs of multiple rib fractures, a collarbone fracture, possible left femur (leg) fracture and a right humerus (arm) fracture, the complaint said.
