    An Antioch man faces homicide charges after allegedly killing his 2-month-old son by punching him in the face.

    Sigifredo Lua, 23, was arrested on Feb. 15 after confessing to hitting the boy, according to Antioch Police Lt. Diane Aguinaga. The child, who sustained mul-tiple fractures, a lacerated liver and bleed-ing on the brain, died Friday at Childrens Hospital in Oakland after he was declared brain dead and taken off life support.

    According to reports, Lua has a his-tory of domestic violence. He was arrest-ed for abusing his older son in 2009 when that boy was also about 2 months old. As a result of the investigation into last weeks incident, Lua has also been charged with corporal injury to a spouse for allegedly assaulting his wife on Feb. 7.

    According to a press release from Aguinaga, doctors at Sutter Delta Memo-rial Hospital contacted police at 8:58 p.m. last Tuesday about a badly injured child brought to the emergency room. The baby was unresponsive when he arrived at the hospital, and doctors suspected child abuse.

    Offi cers discovered that Lua had been taking care of the boy and his sibling on the 700 block of O Street while his wife was at work. Lua called his wife to tell her

    that the baby was injured, and she called 911.

    Police said Luas initial statements didnt match up with the injuries the boy suffered, and that he later confessed to punching him in the face. Lua was arrest-ed and sent to Contra Costa County jail in Martinez, where he remains in custody on $1.1 million bail.

    Ambitious kid dances her way to Big Apple

    While summer vacation is months away, Brentwoods Jasmine Scott has already made plans. The Holy Rosary School sixth-grader will travel to New York for two weeks in June to take part in a intensive summer program at Joffrey School of Ballet.

    Jasmine, 12, fi rst learned about the program last year, but was too young to audition. This year, however, she met the minimum age requirement to try out but she wasnt auditioning for a spot in the program.

    I went to the San Francisco audition for the experience, Jasmine said. I wanted to get an idea of what the process is like so that Id have a better chance of getting in next year. But when I heard the news, I was pleasantly surprised. Im really excited.

    Jasmine approached the auditions nonchalantly and didnt even tell her friends or ballet teacher Nina Koch about her plans to try out. Koch, who has been working with Jasmine for three years at East County Performing Arts in Brentwood, said Jasmines fearlessness has inspired other students to dream big and challenge themselves.

    Shes worked so hard. Were all so happy for her, Koch said. Shes an excellent role model to her peers. It took a lot of guts for her to audition at 12 years old and then to go all the way across the country on her own. Her determination is a good source of motivation for the other students. All of the students, those younger and older, are inspired by her enthusiasm for dance.

    Jasmine takes four ballet classes per week along

    with jazz, tap and contemporary dance classes at East County Performing Arts. Koch said Jasmine would probably take more classes, but can only fi t so many courses into her schedule. Since joining the Brentwood dance school, Jasmine annually performs in The Nutcracker, taking the lead role of Clara two ye
