SPRINGFIELD, Ohio (AP): An Ohio man charged with shaking his infant daughter to death has pleaded not guilty to a murder charge.

Twenty-two-year-old Brian Hayslip appeared Thursday in Clark County Municipal Court where a judge set a $300,000 bond.

Authorities say Hayslip told police he shook his 3-month-old daughter named Lily when she began crying Tuesday while feeding her at the home he and the infant’s mother shared 30 miles north of Dayton in Clark County.

A passer-by found Lily’s dead body hours later strapped to a car seat inside Hayslip’s running truck in Mercer County. A police K-9 tracked Hayslip to a field nearby. He reportedly told police he was looking for a spot to bury his daughter.

The Clark County public defender assigned Thursday to represent Hayslip couldn’t be immediately reached.
