A Palmer man is in custody after he allegedly dropped his one-month-old child multiple times, causing severe head injuries.


19-year-old Darrel H. Sanders is charged with Aggrevated Battery of a Child, a Class X Felony.


Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says as a grandfather, this case hits him a little harder than most.



The baby was originally transported to Taylorville Memorial Hospital. She has since been transferred to Children’s Hospital in St. Louis where she remains in critical condition.


Kettelkamp says always report behavior like this if you hear about it.



Bond for Sanders has been set at one million dollars. His next court date is set for February 26 at 10 a.m.
