State Police said a juvenile was charged Friday with killing a baby in the Neon community of Letcher County.

Because of the age, the suspect's name wasn't released.

Investigators said the child was found dead behind the home, over an embankment.

State Police said the initial investigation led them to a juvenile who was charged with murder.

The State Medical Examiner's Office will conduct an autopsy.

No potential motive was released.

The case remained under investigation.
