East Texas Father Arraigned For Allegedly Shaking And Beating His 9 Month Old Twins

Tyler police say it's heartbreaking. A 9 month old baby girl fighting for life; meantime her father is in jail for allegedly shaking and hitting her.

The father, Delbert Kincade, was arraigned in court Wednesday morning. He was stone-faced as charges were read to him.

It all stems back to September 14th when Salaya Becks was taken to East Texas Medical Center, after her mother reported finding the baby having seizures on the floor. The baby girl was later airlifted to Children's Medical Center in Dallas.

"She's still in critical condition. She's in bad shape to be such a little tiny infant; just 9 months old. But hopefully by the grace of God she'll get better," said Sergeant Destry Walsworth with the Tyler Police Department.

A cat scan revealed severe hemorrhaging in the left side of Salaya's brain. She also had bruises and swelling on her right thigh and bruises to her hip.  Since the incident, doctors say the infant has had constant seizures.

"It tears your heart up to see a child hurt so bad and when it's so senseless. There's nothing a child can do to deserve any kind of injuries like this and children are so innocent," said Walsworth.

Tests show that Salaya's twin brother also has brain injuries and broken ribs. He is in child protective services. Meantime their father is being held on a 500,000 dollar bond in the Smith County Jail.

    The John Tyler Lions always seem to look sharp in their uniforms. But thanks to East Texas lawyer Keith Miller, the Lions will look better and play safer. Helmets that advertise lowering the impact of hits, and possibly reduce the amount of concussions, come with a hefty price-tag. Miller's donation of 7,500 dollars, will go to help the lions cover that cost. "Keith Miller's been a big sponsor of John Tyler High School football program for years now.  I know it's...More >>
