This is truly disturbing!

I could never imagine why anyone would want to hurt their own flesh and blood in this way. It literally turns my stomach just thinking about it.

According to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press, a man from Moorhead, Minnesota (if you can even call him that) is accused of rubbing hot sauce and cayenne pepper in the eyes of his 2-month-old daughter and keeping her from breathing until she turned blue.

Thirty-one-year-old Shawn Foltz is charged with several felonies, including neglect of a child, and malicious punishment of a child.

Authorities say he also snapped her with a towel, burned her by spraying hot water in her face and even threw fireworks at her, all while blaming the injuries on the babies 3-year-old brother.

What's worse, Foltz also admitted to police that he had been doing these horrible things to the baby for the past month in a half, and while at work he would think of ways to harm the baby further.

Our thoughts are certainly with this little baby and her brother...
