STORY: "Suisun City foster father to be sentenced in March in 2010 infant death case," by reporter Ryan Chalk, published by the Reporter on January 12, 2015.

GIST: Attorneys on Monday agreed to return to court in March for sentencing in the case of a Suisun City foster father convicted of second-degree murder in connection with the 2010 death of an infant in his care.........According to trial testimony, the infant, who Tanubagijo referred to as Buddy, suffered from massive subdural hematomas and severe retinal hemorrhages. Medical experts for the prosecution included their opinion that the injuries Buddy suffered could be labeled as abusive head trauma, formerly known as shaken baby syndrome. At trial, jurors also were played video recordings of interviews Tanubagijo had with investigators following the incident. In his second interview with investigators, Tanubagijo explained that Buddy fell from the kitchen table. Late in that second interview, Tanubagijo admitted to shaking the baby four-to-five times in an attempt to revive it after the fall. Taking to the witness stand in his own defense, Tanubagijo testified that he neglected to tell anyone that as Buddy began to choke, he reached over to where the child was placed in a chair on top of the table, causing it to topple over onto the tile floor. He testified that he was afraid and ashamed to tell anyone immediately. Tanubagijo was ordered back to court on March 24, for sentencing. He remains in Solano County Jail custody without bail."
