A Berea man was charged with murder after his three-month-old daughter died Wednesday at the University of Kentucky Hospital, Kentucky State Police said.

The child was taken to the hospital Sunday night after state police responded to a report that she'd been assaulted by her father, Paul Farthing Jr., 30, according to a state police news release. Police were called about 10: 25 p.m. to Meadowlark Drive in Richmond.

Farthing was taken to the Madison County Detention Center. The case is still under investigation.
