MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) - A Fort Riley soldier who is charged in the death of his 5-week-old daughter has been denied a lower bond.

A Riley County judge ruled Tuesday that 22-year-old Alexander McConnell will remain under $200,000 bond. McConnell’s attorney had asked for a reduction to $100,000 so he could post bond and work.

McConnell, an Army specialist, is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse in the February death of his daughter.

The Manhattan Mercury reports (https://bit.ly/1sWPYAn ) that a court affidavit says an autopsy found the baby suffered substantial bleeding in the skull, broken ribs and other internal injuries before her death.
