COSHOCTON — The father of a 2-month-old child has been charged in connection with the infant’s death.

Corey Lafferty, 23, was indicted by the recent Coshocton Common Pleas Court Grand Jury on an unclassified felony count of murder.

The grand jury also handed up a second count of endangering children, a second-degree felony.

Lafferty was arrested Sept. 28, the day of his son’s death. Two days earlier, while he was caring for the child, Lafferty took the boy to a neighbor’s home when the child was unresponsive and she called 911. The child was transferred from Coshocton County Memorial Hospital to Akron Children’s Hospital, where he died.

Lafferty is being held at the Coshocton Justice Center on $750,000 bond.
