Lynn man accused of beating 3-month-old boy to death

LYNN - The Lynn man suspected of murdering a 3-month-old twin boy is a disabled US Army veteran who was having a “difficult time’’ accepting the news that he was not the father of the twin boys he once believed were his biological children, officials said.

Anthony Gideika, 33, pleaded not guilty in Lynn District Court to charges of assault and battery on a child causing serious bodily injury, but could face a charge of murder once the state medical examiner’s office establishes the cause of death for the infant, Essex County prosecutors said today.
