Father indicted in death of infant daughter


The father of a 2-month-old infant who died in May has been indicted by a city grand jury on charges of murder and child abuse, the Baltimore state's attorney's office announced yesterday.

Quentin Jackson, 22, was indicted in the death of his daughter, Quianna Daycelle Jackson, on May 26 at his home in the 800 block of W. Lexington St.

Police said they received a call from the mother reporting that the infant was unconscious.

The state medical examiner's office said the infant, born March 20, died from trauma and ruled the death a homicide last month. Jackson is scheduled to be arraigned Oct. 31.
