KANSAS CITY, Kan. -- Prosecutors have charged a Kansas City, Kan., man with causing serious injuries to a 10-month-old baby who remained in an area hospital on Saturday.
Anderson Cheffen, 31, was charged with child abuse on Friday by Wyandotte County prosecutors. Court records state that Cheffen lived with the baby's mother at a house near 98th Street and Kansas Highway 32 in Edwardsville.
"To know, and to think it happened just two door down from me," a concerned neighbor said. "But I feel for the child, too. A child like that has no defenses, you know."
The district attorney's office said the baby was in "extremely serious" condition. Cheffen was being held in custody on a $1 million bond.
