Kentucky State Police have charged a man in the critical injury of his son with a baseball bat. KSP spokesman Don Trosper says officers arrived at a home in Rockcastle County on Sunday morning to find the 9-year-old boy had been struck in the head with the bat.

The child was flown to the University of Kentucky Medical Center in Lexington and was listed in critical condition. Troopers arrested the boy's father, 34-year-old Jesse Vanwinkle of Livingston, on a criminal abuse charge. He was taken to the Rockcastle County Detention Center, where he remained Monday morning. Jail records do not indicate whether Vanwinkle has an attorney.

The Rockcastle County Sheriff's Department and Child Protective Services are aiding the investigation by the KSP.
