Kennebrew told police he was angered his girlfriend, the baby's mother, had been out of the house most of the day with the newborn.

According to the probable cause affidavit, Kennebrew admitted to punching the woman in the face repeatedly while the woman was sitting on the couch, then pulling her legs off the couch causing her to fall to the floor.

The woman, who wore a brace on her swollen left hand, suffered injuries consistent with the beating, the affidavit states.
