Father Charged With Murder Appears In Court

A Lexington father, charged with killing his infant child, stood before a judge in his preliminary hearing Monday morning.

It's been a week since emergency crews were called to Michael Reed's apartment on Winnie Street. Police say they found the man's baby unresponsive. She later died.

Charged with murder, Reed has already pleaded not guilty. In Monday's preliminary hearing, Michael Reed waived his case to the grand jury.

Police say they found two-month-old Brianna Brown unresponsive in his apartment. According to investigators, Michael Reed admitted he hit his newborn causing head injuries.

The coroner says those injuries led to her death.

Reed's lawyer did ask for a bond reduction, but that request was denied.

    I am the girlfriend of michael reed and in his defence i would like to say that he is a innocent man and is being charged with a crime that he didnt commit.this is killing his friends and family and most importently him. He loves his little gril more then anything in this world and would do anything to have her back.i wish the court system would take the chance to get to know him other then going by whats on the piece of paper they hold infront of their faces cause then they would see the same thing that me and all his friends and family see.. a good kind hearted man who is wrongly accused and needs to be released so he can live his life instead of doing time for a crime that he DID NOT COMMIT!! People are so quick to judge someone they dont know.. FREE MICHAEL!!!!!

    tim is saying that the guy is a worthless human being for harming a baby because there's no excuse for that and he should be either beaten up or killed.
