ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) — A central Kentucky father has pleaded not guilty to a charge of murder in the death of his infant daughter.

The News-Enterprise (http://bit.ly/Z23sZZ) reports 21-year-old Barry W. Williams Jr. entered the plea Tuesday in Hardin Circuit Court.

Elizabethtown police charged Williams after his 6-month-old daughter, Aleyah, was taken to the hospital suffering from bleeding on the brain. The girl died Feb. 26 of a severe head injury.

Williams told police he dropped the child while bathing her, and then shook her to make her stop crying and put her to bed.
