ASHLAND, Ky. (AP) - An Ashland couple has been arrested in connection with the death of their 3-month-old son.

Multiple news agencies report authorities arrested 27-year-old Leslie Daniels and 28-year-old Nora Sawyer Tuesday after the couple had been indicted on murder charges Monday.

Maj. Mark McDowell of the Ashland Police Department says the child died due to blunt force trauma consistent with shaken baby syndrome. He says the baby was bleeding in the brain and had a detached retina.

The child was taken to the hospital after he was found unresponsive on June 10. McDowell says the baby died on June 13.

The couple has been transported to the Boyd County Detention Center in Catlettsburg. A judge set bond at $100,000 each. It’s unclear if the two have attorneys.
