Police say Nunda father broke 12 bones in his baby boy, lied in his polygraph test

February 13, 2018 06:08 PM

The father accused of breaking 12 bones in his baby's body told police he accidentally dropped the baby. News10NBC, however, has the polygraph test report and in it police say he's lying. 

In the report, New York State Police called Brock Hyde "deceptive." They also think he's either trying to cover for the baby's mother or get her to take part of the rap.

Tuesday morning in Geneseo, Hyde told a Livingston County Judge that he's not guilty of abusing his baby boy so badly the baby has 11 broken ribs and a fractured skull. 

After court, his lawyer didn't want to say anything. 

Michael Stivers, defense attorney: "Nothing at all. Thanks very much guys."

Greg McCaffery, Livingston County District Attorney: "A difficult case to prosecute and obviously an 11 week old child can't really defend themselves." 

In his statement, Hyde told police he was "swinging" his baby Kristopher late at night back on November 28th when he was "spooked" by his wife. Hyde says he "fumbled" and "squeezed" the baby and heard the baby let out an "ugh sound like a grunt" and he says the baby his "head on the side of a couch."

His statement says the baby didn't see a doctor for five days. 

State Police got Hyde to take a lie detector test. The report says Hyde was being "deceptive" and "could be covering for his wife."

When we asked the District Attorney about that he said, "Yeah, I can't comment on that."

The report says police caught Hyde calling his wife in a break during the polygraph test. "Hyde was asking her to admit to causing the injury" the report says, because she would "only get probation" and "he would get life." 

The DA says Hyde has four prior felony convictions. News10NBC tracked down state records that show Hyde has already been in prison for burglary, assault, robbery and reckless endangerment. 

Next door to his house in Nunda, his neighbor isn't surprised. 

Pam Martin, neighbor: "I know he has a temper. I've seen his temper. But I wouldn't expect it for a baby."

Nunda Police say the baby is in foster care. Hyde is in jail on $100,000 bail. 

The mother was not in court Tuesday and when News10NBC reporter Kaci Jones knocked on her door, there was no answer.
