A Flushing man was sentenced on Monday to 15 years in prison after a jury convicted him on charges of endangering the welfare of a child and second-degree manslaughter in the death of his 10-week-old daughter in October 2007.
Hang Bin Li, 28, of 43-18 Union St., was given the maximum sentence for violently shaking his daughter Annie and slamming her head into an unidentified object, causing a massive skull fracture, broken legs and catastrophic brain injury — injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome and abusive head trauma.
Li told police that, while holding his daughter, he had accidently bumped her head on a nightstand just before placing the call to 911.
Annie was declared brain dead on Oct. 26, 2007, and life support was withdrawn two days later.
“The sentence imposed today is a measure of justice for the defendant’s 10-week-old daughter, who was senselessly killed by the person who was supposed to protect and nurture her — her very own father,” said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown.
