Crystian Rivera was arraigned in an Oklahoma City courtroom just before noon Wednesday. Oklahoma City detectives say Rivera confessed to shaking his sister, Linda Beletzuy, when she interrupted the video game he was playing. The baby later died at the hospital from her injuries.

Rivera was formally charged with first-degree murder September 2.
