Eastern Kentucky Man Charged With Murder Says He's Innocent

A Lee County man charged with killing his infant daughter says he's not guilty.

23-year old Billy Hollan, Jr stands charged with murder.

An autopsy showed five month old Hailei died from head and neck injuries. Police say Hollan was taking care of the baby while her mother was at school.

Hollan was being held in the Three Forks Regional Jail on a half million dollar bond.

    "Former Lee Countian", I don't think anyone could have said it any better. Ashley, our prayers are with you.

    Ashley, only God and the murderer really knows what happened. All I pray, is that you can find some kind of peace and that if Billy did this to your gorgeous baby, he will confess. The thought of someone hurting a defenseless baby like that sickens me. I know that having two children of my own makes it hard for me to imagine the baby going through the torment that she went through. Whatever happens, my thoughts and prayers are with you. I hope you don't blame yourself, you had know way of knowing that something like this could happen. I would rather leave my children with their father anyday over a babysitter. Take care of yourself and be strong.

    Prayers for both sides of the family in such a difficult time. I don't know what happened but a person is innocent until proven guilty in this country.

    Bull...who else was with this child while the mother was trying to better herself and the future of this beautiful baby? Give this mom some credit. She is trying to get an education, what is he doing? Probably drawing a check. Well guess what? His check will be less cause he killed his dependant! Ashley, my prayers are with you. Rest assured your baby girl is where there is no more evil people who can hurt her. I pray you can be strong, you will need your strength. This is not the man for you! You deserve much better. I hope you never even speak to him again. He killed your precious baby.I'm tired of reading from others "Where was the Mom?" Duh...She was trying to make a life for her and get his education. Now stop it folks! Ashley...I am so sorry.

    Bull (edited)...Was it the wicked witch of the west that did this to the baby? I heard there were fist fights at the funeral home between the grandparents. Guilty, guilty, guilty!
