LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A 27-year-old man faces charges after his 9-month-old stepdaughter was abandoned in Lawrence.

The Kansas City Star reports (https://j.mp/2eTy29S) that Marquis Young is charged in Douglas County with attempted first-degree murder and child abuse. He is also accused of violating his probation.

Police said Young was the stepfather of a 9-month-old girl found abandoned the morning of July 7 at an apartment complex in Lawrence. The baby spent almost two weeks in the hospital before she was released into state custody.

Young is being held on a $100,000 bond. His next court appearance is Oct. 27.
