Ohio man accused in infant daughter’s death held on $2M bond


CINCINNATI (AP) — Bond was set at $2 million for a man accused of killing his 4-month-old daughter who was found dead along a riverbank in Ohio after authorities said he led them to the body.

A Clermont County judge set the bond Tuesday in Batavia for 24-year-Charles Crawford, who is charged with aggravated murder in Kaylynn Crawford’s death. The director of the county public defender’s office appointed to represent the Cincinnati man declined to comment.

Loveland police say in court documents that Crawford called 911 on Sunday indicating someone took the baby from his car parked at a store in the Cincinnati suburb. But they arrested Crawford on Monday after he made statements indicating “his direct involvement” in Kaylynn’s death and led officers to the body along the Little Miami River.
