Accused Abuser Kills Self in Stanislaus Jail

Sponsored by:

A man suspected in the abuse of his infant twins in Modesto committed suicide in the Stanislaus County Jail yesterday, just one day after being arrested.

27-year-old John Allen Hill was taken into custody on two counts of injury to a child with a prior conviction, two counts of great bodily injury, and a parole violation too.

One of Hill´s twins remains in critical condition, and is on a ventilator.

The other twin is expected to be released into protective custody today.

The 2-and-a-half month old twins reportedly had “injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome”…. when they were brought to the hospital on Tuesday morning.

Wednesday, Hill was arrested.

Yesterday, officials say he was found alone in his cell, having hanged himself.
