Neglect Resulting in Death Suspect Appears in Court, Says He's Not Guilty, Held on $100,000 Cash Bond


MARTIN COUNTY -- He says he’s not guilty. 

The Washington man accused of neglect resulting in the death of a one-month-old baby last week made an appearance in Martin County court Tuesday.

26-year-old Bobby Leighty is charged in the death of little Kyson Jones.  Investigators believe the baby went unconscious while in Leighty’s care, and died a few days later at Riley Children’s Hospital.

We are awaiting results of an autopsy.  Officials say they plan to release that information within the next several days.

Leighty is charged with Neglect Resulting in Death.

At Tuesday’s hearing, a judge set his bond at $100,000 cash only.
