A father in Washington was arrested and charged with killing his 5-week-old infant son after prosecutors say that he spent weeks intentionally inflicting pain and torturing the child until he died.
The Benton County Prosecutor’s Office on Wednesday charged 28-year-old Jose L. Rosas Olivo with one count of homicide by abuse and first-degree murder in the death of his newborn son, identified in court documents as JR, the Tri-City Herald reported.
According to the report, Olivo brought his son to the Kadlec Medical Center in Richland on the morning of Sept. 24. The victim was pronounced dead at 5:55 a.m. that day. Benton County Deputy Coroner Nicole Lee then contacted the Richmond Police Department due to the circumstances of the infant’s death and officers were dispatched to the facility.
In his initial interview with investigators, Olivo reportedly claimed that his son was sleeping on his lap as he was watching videos on his phone. He began falling asleep and accidentally dropped the phone which hit the child in the temple, the report stated.
Olivo reportedly claimed that he woke up at 5 a.m. that morning and found his son was not breathing, so he performed CPR and the infant vomited what appeared to be blood. The child’s mother had reportedly been asleep since 11 p.m. the night before.
Olivo was not immediately arrested, but police questioned him again after an autopsy performed by the Snohomish County Medical Examiner’s Office reportedly found that the newborn had “linear fracture on the right side of the skull, bleeding under the entire scalp, diffuse subdural hematoma, multiple anterior and posterior rib fractures (to include several that were broken in two places), and a lacerated liver,” Yakima CBS affiliate KIMA-TV reported.
In the post-autopsy interview, Olivo reportedly told investigators that he had tried to be a good father in the first few weeks of his baby’s life, but said at some point he “no longer cared” and began intentionally harming the crying baby.
Court documents reportedly detailed that Olivo told police that in the beginning he would pull his son’s hair and ears “in order to cause pain” and spank him whenever his diaper was changed, often hitting “above the small of his back with a flat hand.”
“Jose stated he understood what he was doing was causing pain, however, he stated he was unaware that it would cause an injury,” court documents reportedly said. “Jose stated that the evening before JR’s death, he was responsible for JR all night and grew increasingly frustrated with JR’s crying.”
The ruthlessly cruel treatment allegedly only became more malicious, with Olivo reportedly admitting that he “found himself throwing his infant son into his crib from a height above his stomach and chest,” according to KIMA-TV. Olivo reportedly threw the baby so he would rotate in the air “like a football” in a manner “to ensure that [the child’s] head hit the back railing of the crib.” The victim would then land in the crib which was cluttered with toys and objects Olivo said would be painful to land on.
KIMA-TV additionally reported that Olivo told police he began squeezing his son when he was about 3-weeks-old because he became “frustrated.” He allegedly said that he squeezed the boy “every day,” and often times with force “so hard that his shoulders would hurt from the force he place onto his son.” At least once the child stopped breathing for a period of time.
Olivo reportedly said he would wait for the baby’s mother to fall asleep before he began the ritualistic abuse of his son.
In the charging documents, Deputy Prosecutor Brian Hultgrenn reportedly wrote that Olivo “engaged in a pattern or practice of assault or torture” under circumstances “manifesting an extreme indifference to human life.”
Olivo is currently being held in the Benton County Jail on $500,000 bond.

Got a whole lot of of ignorant narcissistic entities, in this world look at DC. Bidens nazis,PLANNED PARENTHOOD. ILLEGALS,GANGS. GOVERMENT PROPAGANDA EDUCATED INDOATED STUDENTS.
ZERO EMOTION, NO SELF RESPECT,STONE COLD HEART, ENJOY PAIN, I FEEL FOR THE MOTHER. BUT SHE SHOULD OF KNOWN .
This is a very sick person. No one should have to endure pain and death like that. Dolores, you sound like a very hateful person. Biden is working to try and help improve lives. Only about 3 % of Planned Parenthood serves are doing abortions. They play a big part of trying to help women with good healthcare. When you don’t know the real facts, it is better to keep quite. There isn’t a good reason to advertise ignorance!
Bonnue you can’t seriously believe any of that BS you just wrote. Planned Parenthood performs thousands of abortions due to lazy people who can’t be bothered to use birth control. Biden is a loser who has no business occupying the White House since he didn’t win. 80 million people didn’t vote for a demented old man and a nasty old w hore. Now I completely understand how democrats work they prey on people like you who know nothing. Planned Parenthood shouldn’t be supported by taxpayer dollars I don’t want my tax dollars paying for losers abortions, you know just like you wouldn’t want your tax dollars supporting anything that’s pro american since democrats hate America.
47.5 million BABIES ABORTED AROUND THE WORLD IN 2020!!! BIden is a joke and a racist….
As someone who worked for an abortion clinic I will school you in the facts. Planned Parenthood does not offer care they offer abortions, that’s it. Biden is selling baby parts to” science”. I saw the video one night of an abortion. The pain on the childs face as it’s body parts were being ripped from it’s body. How they crushed it’s scull because it wouldn’t fit down the vacuum, all while the baby was alive. Abortion is cruel. So if you don’t know the facts don’t speak. Also you might want to read some history on biden and you will find he put thousands of people out of work. Left Americans in Afghanistan and has crippled our economy. Please read some history before you make a complete fool of yourself. Have you not noticed what’s going on around you? Do you see whats happening at the border? Biden is getting ready to take our retirement savings. He’s getting ready to tax our SS. We need help not biden.
The hard truth is that every single DemocRAT is any Enemy to the American people. Don’t be snookered by the fact that every once in a while you hear a DemocRAT accusing their own party of being “too noisy”, which simply means for them to tone it down for a while to fool the American people like they did in the previous election.
Never ever trust a Communist (DemocRAT) and never ever forgive them for the destruction they have bestowed upon this once great nation.
Americans vs Communists (DemocRATs)
This is HORRIBLE!! I pray this animal gets what he deserves in prison and he will!! I know the infant is in Heaven and out of pain now. Where was the mother while this abuse was going on??? She should go to prison too!!
What a poor excuse for being a father to a newborn. Hell awaits him once he gets to the holding cell and eventually general population at the prison.
May God have no mercy on your soul.
Let’s hope so
May he get his just reward in prison!!! I hope it takes him weeks to die.
People are quickly descending to levels of evil unheard of. This is due to their refusal to acknowledge God and as the scripture states they are being given over to a reprobate mind. Satan is standing at the door and seeks to devour all who are foolish enough to think there is no God and no consequences for their sinful behavior. This will only continue to get worse and worse because the world is under the judgement of God. Read the New Testament. This was all predicted 2000 years ago.
I wish they would let me have five minutes with that sorry excuse of a human being.id throw him like I football
You just described the Modus Operandi of a Chinese Communist (DemocRAT) for which the only cure known to medical science is simply termination.
This motherless bastard must be beaten to death with baseball bats wrapped with barbed wire
Communists (DemocRATs) shouldn’t be allowed to propagate their Commie gene set anymore.
