Father Charged With Neglect In 9-Month-Old's Death

Police say a Trenton father is charged with neglecting his 9-month-old daughter. She later died, according to authorities.

Prosecutors say 21-year-old Javon Thomas allegedly chose to do drugs instead of feed and care for his baby. Police got a call last night and went to the house and found the little girl. Authorities say they rushed her to the hospital where she later died.

According to authorities, Thomas stopped feeding his daughter because he was smoking marijuana in his home. They say more charges could come, depending on the outcome of the autopsy.
