An infant suffers severe injuries and the baby's father remains in jail on charges of assault.

Bowling Green police responded to apartments at 1288 Barnwood Court in response to 911 calls detailing a possible deceased infant.

Upon arrival, the two month old infant was then transported to the Medical Center.

Medical staff discovered injuries that were more severe from what the father explained initially.

The father, Jeffery Lemont Peters later confessed to causing serious physical injury to the baby when he became frustrated with her crying.

The infant was then flown to Vanderbilt. Peters remains lodged in the Warren County Regional Jail.
