The 10-month-old girl was removed from the home and turned over to Child Protective Services. Neighbors revealed that the boy's mother is eight months pregnant.
Robinson is due back in court in January. If convicted, he faces 25 years in prison.
“This was a particularly disturbing investigation for our personnel and I credit our patrol officers and detectives for their efforts and professionalism resulting in this arrest," said Police Commissioner Charles Gardner
Robinson was arrested after an intensive investigation, that included numerous interviews, the collection of forensic evidence and video surveillance, revealed that he had struck the child numerous times causing his death, police added.
