On the same day we're learning a Lexington man charged with killing a toddler has been indicted, new details are emerging about the case.

A Fayette County grand jury indicts a man, charged with murdering a toddler.

The jury cleared the way for Leamon Wesner's case to go to trial.

According to a search warrant obtained by 27 NEWSFIRST, a total of seven items were taken from the Lexington home where a two -year- old child was found unresponsive this past November.

Among the list of items taken by police on November 25th, the day Leamon Wesner was arrested for assaulting two-year-old Jessica Nolan, is a yellow blanket with what police say appears to be blood on it.

The details were released along with police statements after talking with Wesner the day he was arrested.

On the police report, it says Wesner intentionally caused the injury and goes on to say he admitted to hitting the child.

This is a different story than the one he apparently told the toddler's mother. Police reports say Wesner told her the child fell in the bathtub, a theory the medical staff at UK disagreed with.

When Wesner was questioned by police another story came out. He told detectives his accidentally hit the child with his skateboard while attempting tricks, also he had struck the little girl with his hand twice after loosing his temper.

By the time Jessica Nolan was transported to UK Hospital, there was nothing emergency personnel can do to save her.

    Judge not lest you be judged. And you will be judged by the same measure you have judged. Be careful what you say. He who is without sin let him cast the first stone. YOU don't KNOW him. I grieve for the child,the mother's loss and for the man. And I pray for them all.

    I say we do everything he said he did to the little angel. Hit him "accidently" with a skateboard, knock him down in the tub, and hit him with your fist a couple of times. Lock this scum away and let someone in prison beat the heck out of him. I agree with jimbo, he deserves to hang!

    I'm with Jimbo on this one, show this chump no mercy. A public hanging or shooting to show all other degenerates what will happen to them if they do something like this to an innocent baby, I feel is in order. Crimes against children and the elderly (Rape or Murder) should be punishable by death, with no questions asked. It is insane that we as a society waste valuable tax dollars, in this current economic climate no less, on scum who can not, will not, and should not be rehabilitated. This seems to be the general consensus among the populous, but are the lawmakers and prosecutors listening?

    This individual is no man I consider him to be a maggot at best. He has already admitted to the crime so why is the state going to have too waste the tax payers money by going through a trial? Take this maggot and have a public hanging, and if they can't find anyone with the guts to pull the lever contact me. Because anyone that would do this to a child doesn't deserve to live any longer. Statistics prove that there is no rehabilitation for this kind of maggot. And if the mother was neglect in any way, she should have equal punishment.
