Father arrested after baby found with head injury
LONDON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A London man was arrested after his four-month old baby suffered a brain bleed from a head injury, according to the Laurel County Sheriff’s Office.
21-year old Dennis Jimmy Bell was charged with wanton endangerment, according to investigators. He was jailed in London.
Deputies say they received a call Tuesday afternoon about an unresponsive baby girl at a home off Sinking Creek Road.
The child was rushed to the hospital in London and later transferred to UK Hospital in Lexington. Social Services placed the baby with her mother at the hospital.
Investigators say there were three separate occasions when the baby was hit in the head, but the father didn’t seek medical treatment in any of the instances.
