Police: Kentucky man charged in death of 7-week-old daughter
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Police say a Kentucky father has been charged with murder in the death of his 7-week-old daughter. Del’Shawn Banks was arrested Monday. The 23-year-old’s bond was set at $250,000, and he’ll be placed on home incarceration if he posts it. Court documents say Del’Luna Banks was unresponsive and had severe head injuries, including a fractured skull, when she was taken to a pediatric center June 17. Medical staff tried to perform lifesaving measures on the infant before she was rushed to a hospital, where she died. The father admitted to shaking his 7-week-old and throwing her on the ground.
