NEW ALBANY, Ind. -- A horrific case of child abuse leaves a baby fighting for her life.
New Albany police said the 13-month-old girl is in critical condition at Kosair Children's Hospital.
The girl's status has been up and down from critical to serious and back to critical.
Detectives said the little girl was severely beaten by her mother's boyfriend.
The beating has left many people wanting to know will the violence against children end.
"It's just horrible. I couldn't believe it when i heard it," said Vickie Pascual, who lives in the area.
Pascual said it makes her sick to think of what the 13-month-old victim endured inside the walls of a home on East Fifth Street.
"I wish I could have been in there to stop it, even if it put me in danger, even if I don't know them," said Pascual.
About 4 p.m. Tuesday, New Albany police were called in to investigate a possible case of child abuse.
"Our officers and detectives responded to the Floyd Memorial Hospital where they received information that the infant was badly injured," said
New Albany Police Chief Todd Bailey.
The situation was so dire, authorities made the decision to immediately transport the child to Kosair Children's Hospital.
Her injuries are extensive. She is being treated for severe bruising and multiple fractures.
Chief Bailey said the investigation into the crime led them straight to the boyfriend of the child's mother, 19-year-old Zack Weis.
"We find it inconceivable that an adult can perpetrate a heinous amount of injury to such a young, innocent infant," said Bailey.
While investigators work to build their case against Weis, residents on East Fifth Street are discussing what they have heard and what they remember about the suspect and the child's mother.

Just give me five minutes alone with that creep.
I’d be satisfied with 5 seconds alone with the POS.
It would take me much longer than 5 minutes. I want him to have time to truely understand what is happening and fully feal the pain that can be inflicted.
It is always the BOYFRIEND it seems.
He looks like he belongs at some Occupy rally.
Not until Jesus returns, but there would be a bit less if unmarried mothers didn't leave their children with violent cretin sex-partners.
Stories like this make me wish He’d speed it up a little.
Tattoo his crime on his face and release him into the general prison population, announcing his crime so that even the illiterate prisoners know what he has done.
The mother should be punished too. What kind of mother LEAVES her child alone with a boyfriend? It’s HER job to see to it that her child is being watched by a responsible, mature adult when she is absent.
“What kind of mother LEAVES her child alone with a boyfriend?”
I wanna say the kind of mother who has the IQ of an ash tray. Then I think of what my Grandmother used to say and I know she is correct. This woman was more than likely still a child herself when she gave birth.
In an amoral society that is not socialized to love human life and dignity, the weak ones are at the mercy of the amoral. That is children, the handicapped and the elderly. Notice all the violent attacks on the elderly, too? It leads to eugenics and genocide.
It will end when “mothers” quit bringing vermin like this into their home, and leaving said vermin with their children. I say she’s as guilty as he is.
