Father charged with child's death

Louisville police have charged a teenager in the death of his 17-month-old child.

Police say 19-year-old Jeremy Louis Neal Green faces felony neglect of a dependent.

Green apparently gave the child medication in February, then placed the baby in a damaged bed where its head became lodged between the rails.

The Kentucky Medical Examiner's Office said an autopsy revealed that the child died of positional asphyxia.

The report said a high level of an over-the-counter medication could have contributed to the child's death.
