Man charged in daughter's death
St. Mary's County authorities have charged a Lexington Park man in the death of his 4-month-old daughter.
The St. Mary's County Bureau of Criminal Investigations said Sunday that Brian Hart, 21, has been charged with child abuse resulting in death.
Authorities say Brooke Hart was flown to Georgetown University Hospital last weekend with critical injuries. Doctors were concerned that her injuries were the result of child abuse.
Brooke died Thursday, and officials say injuries consistent with child abuse were noted during a postmortem examination.
Officials say the investigation is continuing.
