Jeffersonville parents charged with neglect of 5-month-old
A Jeffersonville couple claim their baby was hurt by his brother, but investigators say the story doesn't add up.
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Jeffersonville couple claim their baby was hurt by his brother, but investigators say the story doesn't add up.
Investigators say Helen Bardney and Arthur Vasser took their 5-month-old son to the hospital with a broken leg and injuries on his face earlier this month.
According to court documents, the parents told police the boy's toddler brother accidentally hurt him -- but investigators say the injuries didn't match that story.
Vasser is charged with battery and both parents are charged with neglect.
"That charge stems from the fact that the individuals let this child be in pain all day long with a broken leg and facial injuries and didn't take the child to get any sort of medical attention," said Clark County Prosecutor Jeremy Mull.
Both Bardney and Vasser are expected in court today.
