HOUSTON -

Opening statements began Wednesday in the trial for a father accused of killing his baby daughter.

Iniubong Ebong is charged with capital murder after investigators say he shook his 5-month-old to death.

Witnesses included a nurse who was in the emergency room when the child was brought into the hospital three years ago.

Ebong, 34, has reportedly admitted to shaking the child  when she wouldn't stop crying.
