A Flushing man accused of shaking his baby girl to death and slamming her head on a night stand has been convicted of manslaughter, authorities said.

Hang Bin Li, 28, bumped his daughter’s head on a night stand in October 2007 and failed to call the cops until two days later, according to trial testimony. His 10-week-old daughter, Annie, was “sweating, not moving her arms or legs and making distressed gurgling sounds” when she was finally rushed to the hospital, District Attorney Richard Brown said.

She was declared brain dead and taken off life support shortly after, the DA’s office said. Medical testimony said the child suffered a massive skull fracture and broken legs.

“It is shocking to consider that a father could inflict such brutality and suffering on one as young and innocent as his daughter,” Brown said. “His horrific actions robbed her of her life and the countless potential it held.”

Li was found guilty February 1 of second-degree manslaughter and endangering the welfare of a child following a four-week jury trial. He faces up to 15 years in prison when he is sentenced March 4.
