Police in Lexington say a father admitted to investigators that he killed his one-month-old son on Thanksgiving morning.
According to an arrest report, Caz Hazuga, 22, said he intentionally slammed the child’s head on the kitchen counter at his home on Henton Road several times. Hazuga was arrested Friday and charged with murder.
Folks living nearby said the 22-year-old and his family had only moved into the neighborhood a few weeks ago.
“I met the girl when she got out of the hospital with the baby. It was a beautiful little boy,” described neighbor, Myrna Kidd. “If this gentleman down here done what they say he’s done, he ought to have to live in prison for the rest of his life.”
LEX 18 spoke over the phone Saturday with the child’s mother. She said she does not know how her son died and that Hazuga’s confession was “forced.”
Hazuga is set to appear in court Monday.
