Charges against father in child abuse case upgraded to murder


A father accused of abusing his 5-week-old baby was charged with her death Wednesday.

Lincoln Levys and the child’s mother, Sheena Alson, were arrested in October after the child was taken from a home on McNary Boulevard and died at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

According to the criminal complaint, the baby had bruises on her back and arm plus three broken bones.

Levys was originally charged with three counts of aggravated assault, three counts of endangering the welfare of children and one count of prohibitive acts.

Alson is facing three counts of child endangerment.
