Radcliff man to be retried in death of his 1-year-old son

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A prosecutor says she will retry a Radcliff father charged with killing his 1-month-old son.

Jarrod Davis is charged with murder in the death of his infant son, Ja'Vion Davis, in January.  An indictment says he "wantonly engaged in conduct that created a grave risk of death" to the child.  Davis says he was burping the child when he dropped him.

Last week's trial ended with a hung jury.

Assistant Commonwealth's Attorney Teresa Logsdon says she will continue pursuing those charges.

A hearing to be held on Oct. 29 in Hardin Circuit Court will schedule a new trial date.
