CHESTER, S.C. — Bond has been denied for a Chester County man charged with homicide by child abuse after his girlfriend’s 11-month-old daughter died with head injuries.
A judge on Saturday denied bond for 27-year-old Jeffery Todd Bradley Jr. He’s next scheduled in court in November.
Chester County deputies say Bradley was the only adult at the home with the baby when she suffered injuries that needed emergency hospital care.
Deputies responded to a call about an injured baby on Wednesday but found the home empty. Deputies then got a call from Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte, where the girl had fractured skull and eye and kidney injuries. She died Friday.
Bradley left the U.S. Army in 2012 after nearly a decade in the military. If convicted, he could face life in prison.
