FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — A 25-year-old Brunswick man has been indicted on a first-degree murder charge in the death of his 2-month-old daughter. 

Frederick County State’s Attorney Charlie Smith says Jason Zirinsky was indicted by a grand jury Friday. 

If convicted of first-degree murder, Zirinsky faces a possible sentence of life without parole. He could get another 25 years for child abuse resulting in death. 

Smith says prosecutors are awaiting the final autopsy report on Zirinsky’s daughter, Lexi Regina Zirinsky. Court documents say Lexi’s injuries included bite marks, cuts, bruises, hemorrhaging and broken ribs. 

Zirinsky was previously sentenced to 3 years in prison in New Jersey for child endangerment involving another baby girl who suffered broken bones. He pleaded guilty to failing to seek medical attention for her.

    Why give this person another cahnce to harm,/kill another child ? He will only do it again & again.
    Put him away for the rest of his life.
    There are people in prison for life who has not harmed near as much as this man has.
