A 23-year-old man stands accused of beating to death his girlfriend’s 9-month-old baby girl.
The infant, identified as Ariel Eluziario, was first taken to a hospital in New Bedford, Massachusetts at 6pm Thursday and then flown via helicopter to a children’s hospital in Providence, Rhode Island where she was pronounced dead around 10pm.
Ariel Eluziario celebrated her first and only Christmas in 2012. She was brutally beaten and later died allegedly at the hands of her mother’s 23-year-old boyfriend Ethen Harrison
Though the girl’s mother has not been identified, Mail Online was able to obtain photos of the tragically slain little girl through the accused killer’s public Facebook profile.
Ethen Harrison of New Bedford was arraigned in district court today on charges of reckless endangerment of a child, assault and battery on a child causing substantial bodily injury, and assault and battery with a dangerous weapon.
He is currently being held without bail.
Harrison’s Facebook profile, which lists his occupation as ‘F*** That Sh**!!!!,’ also lists him as ‘In a Relationship’ with Amanda Eluziario.
Photos of the young couple together, the adorable little girl, and of both Harrison and Eluziario with the little girl remain on Eluziario’s profile.

Harrison admitted to police he slapped, shook and dropped Ariel Eluziario four feet off a bed. The 9-month-old girl was pronounced dead Jan. 24, 2013
Much of the photo section of Amanda Eluzario’s profile is dedicated to shots of the smiling little Ariel Lillian.
In one particularly jarring photo, Harrison looks down at the baby, sneering as she cries helplessly.
As part of their move to revoke accused baby killer Ethen Harrison’s bail, prosecutors in the case said Ariel Eluziario suffered ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’
Harrison, who was not Ariel’s father, was the only person with the baby at the time of the incident.
He was out on bail for unrelated pending charges including larceny and threats to commit a crime at the time of the slaying.
Harrison’s own father has held a restraining order against his son since June.
‘He is out of control,’ the father, Francis Harrison, attested in court documents. ‘When he mad he breaks things, windows, doors. Whatever he gets his hands on. He hurts himself. He carries knives.’
It is unclear if the weapon referred to in the charges against Harrison is a knife. Also unclear is the exact nature of all the injuries that led to Ariel Eluziario’s extremely untimely death.
Though police descriptions of her tragic end are vague, prosecutors submitted the child’s ‘subdural hemorrhage, retinal hemorrhaging, a blot clot in the brain and other signs of severe abuse’ as reasons the judge should revoke Harrison’s bail.
Harrison admitted during police questioning that he’d dropped Ariel onto the floor, forcefully picked her back up, threw her onto the bed and caused her to bounce four feet back down onto the floor. He also admitted to shaking and slapping the child.

Dozens of photos of Ariel were posted on Amanda Eluziario’s Public Facebook Profile which shows a healthy, normal infant. The more recent photo of the deceased child was posted two days before Christmas. Scrolling down the photos you’ll see Ariel at 7 and 8 months, the age she was when Harrison started a relationship with Eluziario. Harrison is shown in several photos feeding Ariel, including the photo below.
