X-rays revealed the child suffered fractures to her skull, ribs, arms and legs. Doctors also noted bruising on her abdomen, back and cheek, according to the complaint.
Attoe described for investigators several ways he "may have" caused the infant's injuries during her bouts of inconsolable crying and when she would not cooperate while he was dressing her, according to the complaint.
He said he forced her leg to her face after the infant kicked his surgical incision, the complaint states. Attoe recalled her crying in pain.
Attoe said he pulled his daughter's arms behind her back when she was flailing as he tried to dress her.
The baby had difficulty sleeping after the incident where her rib cracked, Attoe said, but he did not tell his wife or take the infant to the hospital.
"(Attoe) ... said he felt that he failed as a parent," the complaint states.
