A central Kentucky father has pleaded guilty to a charge of murder in the death of his infant daughter.
Elizabethtown police charged Williams after his 6-month-old daughter, Aleyah, was taken to the hospital suffering from bleeding on the brain. The girl died Feb. 26 of a severe head injury.
Williams told police he dropped the child while bathing her, and then shook her to make her stop crying and put her to bed.
The plea deal calls for Williams to serve 20 years in prison. Formal sentencing was set for Jan 21.
