Court Documents Allege That Manhattan Man Killed an Infant

staff - May 14, 2016 6:14 am

A 21-year-old man has pleaded no contest to a murder charge in the 2014 death of a Pittsburg State student.

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) – Newly released court documents allege that a Manhattan homicide suspect killed a 3-month-old girl.

The Manhattan Mercury 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.
