Hearing set regarding 2-month-old boy on life support

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A hearing set for today could determine whether a two-month-old boy will stay on life support.

The boy's father Juan Lopez Rosales, who goes by Alex, was in court on Friday. He's accused of hitting his son Isaac's head against a bathtub and fracturing his skull.

 The baby is at Kosair Children's Hospital, and a Norton spokesperson says he is medically brain dead. Norton has filed a motion to withdraw life support but is waiting on the court to decide.

Rosales is currently facing a criminal abuse charge and is expected back in court this afternoon.
