Hardin County trial of father accused in infant's death ends in mistrial
Reported by: Associated Press
Reported: Saturday, October 19, 2013 4:16 PM EDT
The Hardin County murder trial of a father charged in the death of his 1-month-old son has ended with a hung jury.
Davis was charged 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 reached for a television remote control while holding the baby. Davis said Ja'Vion jerked, causing him to drop the infant.
