Trial for Murdered Infant to Begin in June

A Bowling Green man will go to trial after the murder of his infant daughter.

According to police, 21-year-old Jeffery Peters trial date is in Warren Circuit Court on June 26, 2007. Police said Peters became frustrated with the infants crying on April 11, 2006, when he then shook her and threw her into a couch at his residence.

The police report says Peters told investigators the 2-month-old baby fell from the couch while he was outside trying to install a car seat. Doctors determined her injuries could not have been caused by a fall.

The child was transferred to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where she died on April 17, 2006.
