Experts: child's injuries didn't come from fall

Published:

LEBANON, Ohio (AP) -- Doctors who treated a southern Ohio toddler now in a vegetative state say his injuries are too severe to have been suffered in a fall off a chair as the child's accused abuser claims.

The Warren County court testimony came Tuesday in the trial of 30-year-old Jason Milby, who is accused of causing "neurologically devastating" injuries to the 2-year-old son of his fiance.

The Dayton Daily News (http://bit.ly/VbII1R ) reports Milby was babysitting the child and his two siblings when the child was hurt in July 2011. The boy now cannot walk, talk, feed himself or see.

Prosecutors argue Milby slammed Bryce's head onto something soft like a mattress.

A jury was unable to reach a verdict in Milby's first trial in June.
