A Palmdale man admitted to punching his girlfriend’s baby five times in the head, and the child’s mother delayed seeking medical care that may have saved his life, according to court testimony.
The testimony came at a preliminary hearing for Brandon Williams and Rosie Lee Wilson.
Both were ordered Friday to stand trial for murder in connection with the death of Wilson’s 2-year-old son, Anthony.
Williams was additionally ordered to stand trial for assault on a child causing death, torture, and willful cruelty to a child likely to produce great bodily injury, according to Ricardo Santiago of the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office.
Tinder has sent a cease and desist letter to the AIDS Healthcare Foundation after a billboard went up in Los Angeles last week that draws a link between dating apps and a growing rate of sexually transmitted diseases.
The foundation said the billboard's purpose is to raise awareness about the increasing STD rate and to encourage dating-app users to get regular screenings or a “free STD check.” The billboard features silhouettes of people and the words “Tinder, Chlamydia, Grindr, Gonorrhea.”“In many ways, location-based mobile dating apps are becoming a digital bathhouse for millennials wherein the next sexual encounter can literally just be a few feet away—as well as the next STD,” Whitney Engeran-Cordova, the foundation’s public health division director, said in a statement.“While these sexual encounters are often intentionally brief or even anonymous, sexually transmitted diseases can have lasting effects on an individual’s personal health and can certainly create epidemics in communities at large,” the statement continued.It also referenced a Vanity Fair article that attributed a boom in casual hookups to the emergence of dating apps like Tinder.The foundation also cited a report from the Rhode Island Department of Health that said STD rates in that state increased from 2013 to 2014.We look forward to seeing you or talking with you this season.As always, we are humbled by the support you have given us.
