The baby was rushed to the hospital with a body temperature of 84 degrees.

Doctors at Tacoma’s Mary Bridge Children’s Hospital expect the infant to recover, Pierce County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Ed Troyer said Sunday.

The infant’s 22-year-old mother called 911 at about 4:30 p.m. Saturday and said she had found her boyfriend, Tyler Deutsch, taking the baby out of the freezer in their home in the 7600 block of 320th Street South, near the city of Roy, Troyer said.

The child is believed to have been in the freezer for about an hour.

Deutsch told sheriff’s deputies he put the infant in the freezer to stop the girl from crying, Troyer said.

He was booked into the Pierce County Jail on a charge of suspicion of attempted murder. He has no criminal history.

    Another woman who will put up with anything, including having her baby killed, just so she can have a man in her bed. She will forgive him after he says he's sorry. He will then do it again, and again, she will forgive him.

      He was the child's father. And he had no previous criminal history. How was she supposed to know he would do something like that? You sure are assuming a lot.

    Yet another puke that likes to hurt children. He needs to go to prison forever, or be put to death. Don't people like this have any support system at all? If my neighbor came to my house with a screaming infant and said they were so stressed they were thinking about harming the child, I would help them. Even if I didn't know the person, I would still help them out and give them a break. Instead, this guy could have killed that newborn baby instead of trying to find help. Sickening.

    When will people learn that crying is normal for babies – even under the best of circumstances, it is an outlet – for frustration, anxiety, and stress, which yes, babies feel all of these things, but they cannot express it in words, so duh, they cry. All you need to do is just walk away. Leave them alone. If you can't stand the sound of it, go outside for a bit, whatever it takes to calm yourself and let the baby get it out of it's system. It's that simple.

    I’m the babies great uncle and I was sickened by the news. He is lucky I live on the other end of the country and was not there when this happened. I hope he goes to jail for a long long time and cries every night until his fellow inmates get sIck of hearing him and take care of it. He makes me SICK.
