LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Kentucky man charged with the murder of his baby girl has pleaded guilty in court.

Barry Williams, Jr., age 21, entered a guilty plea in Hardin Circuit Court yesterday.

Elizabethtown Police arrested Williams after his 6-month-old daughter was taken to the hospital. The baby suffered from bleeding from the brain and later died.

Williams admitted to dropping her while giving her a bath, then shook her to stop the crying.

The plea deal has Williams serving 20 years in prison. Formal sentencing is scheduled later in January.
