Man indicted in toddler's death

A Lexington man accused of killing a 2-year-old girl has been indicted on murder charges.

A grand jury Tuesday charged Leamon Wesner on accusations he killed his girlfriend's daughter, Jessica Nolan, who died Nov. 25 at University of Kentucky Medical Center. Police were called to 515 Michigan Avenue about 10:45 a.m. that day about an unresponsive child and found her with a severe head injury. Police have said Wesner was the only person home with Jessica the day she was injured.

Wesner is scheduled to be arraigned at 11:30 a.m. Friday in Fayette Circuit Court.
