Prosecutor to retry father in infant's death

ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) - A central Kentucky prosecutor says she will retry a father charged with killing his 1-month-old son.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Teresa Logsdon told The News Enterprise that she would continue pursuing charges against Jarrod Davis of Radcliff, whose trial ended last week with a hung jury.

Davis was charged with murder in the death of his infant son, Ja'Vion Davis, in January. An indictment said Davis "wantonly engaged in conduct that created a grave risk of death" to the child.

A medical examiner found blunt force trauma to the baby's head and several other injuries.

Davis said he was burping his son when he dropped the infant.

An Oct. 29 hearing was set in Hardin Circuit Court to schedule a new trial date.
