GLASGOW, Kentucky — A Barren County man has pleaded not guilty to killing an 8-week-old infant.
The Glasgow Daily Times (http://bit.ly/1Ma8m1q) reports Chad Flora Lewis also entered a not guilty plea in Barren Circuit Court on Monday to charges of cultivating marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia.
A grand jury indicted Lewis last month on the charges stemming from the death of Jalayah Grace Clark, who was found unresponsive at a residence on Sept. 6. Court documents say she died at Kosair Children's Hospital two days later.
An autopsy found that the child died of a closed-head injury. According to Barren County Sherriff's Detective Rusty Anderson, Lewis said he was the only one with the child when she was injured.
The drug charges stem from marijuana plants found during the death investigation.
