Everett man charged after infant daughter injured

EVERETT, Wash. (AP) — An Everett man has been charged with child assault after his infant daughter suffered a brain bleed. The Daily Herald reports 33-year-old Shane Cowherd was charged earlier this month in Snohomish County Superior Court with second-degree assault of a child. Court records say he told detectives he panicked when he threw the baby onto the bed, causing her to land in a way that resulted in the brain bleed. Documents say the incident happened in 2018 at his Everett home. When he first brought her into Providence Regional Medical Center Everett, he initially claimed to health care staff he fell on her, according to charging papers. It wasn’t immediately known if he has a lawyer.
