Kentucky State Police have arrested a Harrison Co. man for abusing his four-month-old child.

David Moore, 25, was charged after the KSP Dry Ridge Post received a call Saturday from the Cincinnati Children's Hospital concerning head injuries to the infant.

KSP detectives interviewed the mother, Janet Baxter, 20, at the hospital. Moore was later interviewed at his Harrison County home and was arrested and charged with criminal abuse of an infant. He is lodged in the Bourbon County Detention Center. The case remains under investigation.
