GREENWOOD COUNTY (WIBW)- Authorities have charged a Greenwood County man with first-degree murder and child abuse after his 6-month-old son died in a Wichita hospital.
The Emporia Gazette reported that 22-year-old Benny Clark of Reece was charged Thursday in the death of his son Cooper Clark. He is being held on a $1 million bond.
It was not immediately clear whether he had a defense attorney, and the prosecutor on the case did not immediately return a message.
The newspaper reported that deputies responded to the Greenwood County Hospital emergency room on Tuesday for a report of a possible child abuse.
The boy was later taken to Wesley Medical Center in Wichita.
Deputies learned the next day that he had died.
