Felony Child Abuse Charge
Kyle S. Baylor, 24, of Springfield has been charged with Felony Child Abuse regarding injuries that he inflicted on his one year old daughter. His bond has been set at $250,000.
Springfield Police responded to 920 E. Adams shortly after 12-noon on Wednesday reference a child who had fallen off a couch. Police arrived along with EMS and found the child unresponsive. She was transported to Cox South Hospital where she is in critical condition.
During the early stages of the preliminary investigation police became suspicious of the father’s statements. The injuries the child suffered are inconsistent with falling off a couch.
The child’s mother was not at the home at the time the injuries were received. There was one other young child in the home at the time that was unharmed.
