A man accused a beating his baby girl answered to the charges on Monday afternoon.
22-year old Eric Martin is charged with first degree assault. He pleaded not guilty at a video arraignment in Fayette County.
Last month, Martin rushed his barley-breathing baby to the Salvation Army in Lexington. Workers at the clinic performed CPR on the little girl.
She is still recovering at UK hospital.
Martin is being held on a $7,500 bond.
