ABBEVILLE (AP) — The death of a 3-month-old Abbeville girl has been ruled a homicide.
Lt. David Hardy, chief of investigations for the Abbeville Police Department, told The Advertiser the baby, who has not been identified, died from blunt force trauma to the head, and sustained head injuries and fractures.
Hardy says officers were alerted on Monday that the baby had died on Friday, two days after she was taken to the emergency room at Abbeville General Hospital. Investigators said the child was transported to Women's & Children's Hospital in Lafayette and then to a hospital in Baton Rouge, where she died.
No charges have been filed in the infant's death, but Hardy said the investigation is continuing
