LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) -- Authorities say a father has been charged with murder in the death of his 29-day-old child.

The Fayette County Detention Center says 22-year-old Caz Hazuga is being held without bond on a murder charge.

Lexington police were called out Thursday morning for a report of an unresponsive child.

A coroner's report says the infant died at a hospital. The cause of death is under investigation.

According to an arrest citation, Hazuga acknowledged causing the infant's death by "striking his head on the kitchen counter multiple times."

The Associated Press could not determine if Hazuga has a lawyer.
