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.


This story has been edited to remove reference in the short headline to “his” infant, and to delete a name in the 2nd paragraph.
