Northern Ky. man charged in death of infant son

ELSMERE, Ky. (AP) - Police in northern Kentucky have charged a
Elsmere man in the death of his infant son.

Authorities arrested 26-year-old Matthew Pyles on Sunday on a
charge of first-degree assault.

The Kentucky Enquirer reported more serious charges were
expected, following the death of Gaige Pyles at Cincinnati
Children's Hospital on Monday evening. The child was 7 months old.

Police were notified by the Cincinnati hospital after the child
was transferred there from a Florence hospital.

The newspaper reported Pyles and the baby's mother, Johnna Town,
took the infant to the emergency room on Saturday.

Kenton County Commonwealth's Attorney Rob Sanders said he will
not seek charges against Town.
