The man and woman accused of killing a nine month old baby in Oak Grove Tuesday will be charged with murder.
Kentucky State Police spokesman Trooper Stu Recke says 9-month old Jack Stark was being cared for by his aunt and uncle—27-year old Christopher Leutwyler and 27-year old Joni Leutwyler—while his parents were out of town.
Trooper Recke says Stark was found unresponsive at the Leutwylers’ Oak Grove home Tuesday night and the investigation led to their arrest Thursday.
The baby died from his injuries at Vanderbilt Children’s Medical Center late Thursday night and the couple’s charges will be increased from child abuse to murder.
Both suspects are lodged in the Christian County Jail on $150,000 bond. The investigation continues by Kentucky State Police Detective Lloyd Ray.
