KIMBALL — A western Nebraska man has been accused of intentional child abuse in the death of his 7-month-old daughter.
Kimball County Court records say 23-year-old Alexander Romero was arraigned earlier this month. His next hearing is scheduled for April 24.
Court records say the Kimball man gave police two versions of what happened to his daughter. In one he said she was injured when she fell off a futon. In the second, he said he'd been "playfully running" with her when he tripped and fell. He told officers he placed her on the futon when he went to find his phone. He says she then fell.
The records say doctors who examined the girl say her injuries could not have been caused by an accidental fall.
