Eventually she did stop. Nichole Williams died from her injuries.
While Nichole was left to suffer on a sofa, Tapley went to another room to play video games.
Tapley was babysitting while the baby's mother was at work.
The incident occurred Feb. 14, 2013 in Indianapolis. Tapley was sentenced earlier this month to 45 years in prison for felony neglect of a dependent. The sentencing was reported Feb. 11, 2015.
Leftists who fussed over the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner were not apparently bothered by the death of a black baby. Black lives only matter to cultural Marxism when it can be exploited to support the narrative that whites oppress blacks. Black-on-black crimes don't pass the vetting process and are are typically ignored by the national mainstream Marxist media.

Jared Tapley, who had been dating Nichole’s mother, admitted Wednesday that he had been frustrated because the little girl wouldn’t stop crying. He was watching the 4-month-old while her mother was at work.
Tapley, 22, said he shook Nichole repeatedly trying to get her to stop crying, and she hit her head on the wall. He said he placed her on the couch then, despite noticing that her cries sounded different, went to play video games with someone in a different part of the home.
When Tapley checked on her later, he said Nichole wasn’t breathing. He called 911 and she was rushed to the hospital. Nichole died two days later of extensive brain damage. She also had a skull fracture and bruises on her head, chin and back.
Marion Superior Court Judge Marc Rothenberg sentenced Tapley on Wednesday to 45 years in prison, which is five years short of the maximum sentence he could have received.
Tapley pleaded guilty in October to felony neglect of a dependent, court records show. In return for his guilty plea, Marion County prosecutors agreed to dismiss the murder and felony battery charges pending against him.
