Story Update: On April 16 the baby was declared dead.
A five-month-old girl from the Rogers Park area is on life support after her father, 29-year oldRodrigo Rodriguez, repeatedly covered her mouth as an attempt to stop her crying.
Rodriguez and the baby's mother Angela Petrov, 21, were reportedly drinking Hennessey in the room where their daughter was asleep in her playpen when the child began to cry.
Doctors also found older skull fractures while examining the baby. A judge has charged both Rodriguez and Petrov with aggravated battery of a child and ordered they be held on a $5 million bail during their separate hearings.
