ASHLAND, Ky. - An eastern Kentucky father is facing a manslaughter charge in the death of his daughter.
WYMT-TV reports deputies with the Boyd County Sheriff's Office arrested 30-year-old John Elliott Jr. on Monday in the death of 2-year-old Summer Elliott.
Investigators say the child died in March at a babysitter's home. A coroner determined that she died of compression.
Online records at the Boyd County Detention Center don't show whether Elliott has an attorney.
