MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - Newly released court documents allege that a Manhattan homicide suspect killed a 3-month-old girl.

The Manhattan Mercury (http://bit.ly/1TaGy1P ) reports that 25-year-old Andrew Gibson is jailed on first-degree murder and child abuse charges in last week’s death of a 3-month-old baby. Bond is set at $500,000.

The affidavit says that a series of bruises and abrasions led a doctor to conclude that she was killed. The affidavit says a doctor also found older injuries, such as partially healed broken bones.

She was rushed to a hospital May 5 after officers responded to a call about an infant who wasn’t breathing. Efforts to revive the infant weren’t successful, and the child was pronounced dead at the hospital.
