FARMINGTON — A pair of fathers were charged Thursday with abusing their 2-month-old children in separate cases.

In Davis County’s 2nd District Court, Hayden Norman Pierce, 29, of Layton, was charged with child abuse, a second-degree felony.

On Nov. 21, police were called to Pierce’s home on a report of a 2-month-old girl who was not breathing.

“Pierce made a statement to police that he had been frustrated with the infant crying and shook the infant with an aggressive shake/jerk on two occasions,” according to charging documents.

Doctors discovered a brain bleed on the infant, the charges state.

In Utah County’s 4th District Court, Daniel Cano Gutierrez, 29, of Provo, was charged with child abuse, a second-degree felony.

On Nov. 25, Gutierrez’s 2-month-old son was flown to Primary Children’s Hospital with a fractured skull, a brain bleed, three fractured ribs and three leg fractures, according to charging documents.

Doctors determined the skull fracture happened on the that day, and the rib and leg fractures days to weeks earlier, the charges state.

Gutierrez later admitted to being frustrated by the child due to constant crying and fussing and to forcefully squeezing him, according to the charges.
