Cobb 2-month-old has 20 broken bones, skull fracture; parents in custody

A Marietta woman and her boyfriend are in jail after their 2-month-old daughter was found to have 20 broken bones and a skull fracture, Cobb County Police said.

A Children's Healthcare of Atlanta employee called police after the child was examined at the hospital Tuesday.

Police charged Antoinette White, 22, with aggravated battery, felony cruelty to children and second-degree cruelty to children. She is being held on $100,000 bond. Her boyfriend, Kevin Straight, 32, was charged with second-degree cruelty to children. He is being held on $50,000 bond.

"Horrible doesn't begin to describe this tragic case," Police spokesman Sgt. Dana Pierce said.

Investigators interviewed the couple at the Crimes Against Children Office, then arrested them. Authorities took a 1-year-old child from the home into protective custody.
