Quebecer suspected of shaking his baby daughter charged with aggravated assault

GATINEAU, Que. - A girl who is not yet two months old was listed in critical condition in an Ottawa hospital on Thursday after allegedly being shaken by her father.

The 25-year-old Quebec man was charged with aggravated assault when he appeared in a courtroom Thursday in Gatineau, Que.

He was arrested on Wednesday in Thurso shortly after the girl was taken to hospital.

The Crown opposed the man's release and he will remain behind bars at least until the case resumes Monday.

His lawyer says his client has no criminal past.
