A Henderson man is behind bars after a month-long abuse investigation that began in April 2021.

The Henderson Police Department says a warrant for the arrest of 21-year-old Seth A. Justice was served on Monday on the charge of Criminal Abuse 1st Degree Victim Child Under 12.

According to HPD, the charge stems from an investigation that began on April 5, 2021, when HPD was contacted about a newborn infant that had numerous injuries inconsistent with a story given by the child's parents to medical professionals.

HPD says that during the investigation, it was determined that Justice was alone with the child when the injuries occurred. 

The investigation remains ongoing at this time.

Our third day in a row with very mild temperatures. Highs across the Tri-State were in the low and middle 60's. A few showers at times crossed the area. A cold front will push through the Tri-State and will cause a few strong storms, that could have strong winds and even some torrential rain. Some flash flooding is a possibility. Strong winds overnight switching from the southwest to the northwest and may gust as high as 30 mph.
