Sioux City father admits to hurting two girls with skull fractures


Two small girls have multiple skull fractures, and their father admitted to Sioux City police he slammed their heads on the floor.

22 year-old Christopher Schmidt is charged with several counts of child endangerment with serious injury and willful injury.

Schmidt told police he has an uncontrollable temper.

A doctor's examination this week of the two-year-old and seven month old, revealed both had severe skull fractures, but the first incident happened about a year ago.

Schmidt told police he slammed his then one year-old daughter's head against the floor.

Several months later, Schmidt said he did a similar thing to his then three month-old daughter.

In a separate incident, in June, he also admitted to grabbing the same infant by the face and slamming the child's head against the corner of the wall.

Schmidt has a court hearing next week.
