ELIZABETHTOWN, Ky. (AP) — The second trial for a central Kentucky father accused in the death of his 1-month-old son has begun.

The News Enterprise (http://bit.ly/1hR9R7C) reports testimony began on Wednesday in the trial of 25-year-old Jarrod D. Davis.

Davis is charged with murder and abuse in the death of Ja'Vion Davis in January 2013. An indictment said Davis "wantonly engaged in conduct that created a grave risk of death" to the child.

A medical examiner found blunt force trauma to the baby's head and several other injuries.

Davis said the injuries occurred when he dropped the infant.

Radcliff police detective Mac Slack testified that he became suspicious after Davis changed his story about how the child was injured.

Davis' first trial ended with a hung jury.
