CINCINNATI — An Avondale man is in jail after being charged with murder in connection with the death of a 6-month-old baby in Hamilton County.
A criminal complaint filed in Hamilton County court accuses LeAndre Glenn, 21, of purposefully causing the death of the baby on June 15. The complaint is based on an investigation by the Cincinnati Police Department and witness statements.
Police arrested Glenn Saturday, and his bond hearing was Monday. In court, prosecutors did not say how Glenn hurt the child or how he knew the child. Prosecutors and police would not elaborate on the exact date of the child's death.
A police report says it happened at an apartment on Reading Road. His family there declined to comment.
Glenn's attorney, Herb Haas, asked the judge to keep his bond at an amount Glenn could afford.
"As to the allegations, they are serious," Haas told the judge. "However, June 15th to now, my client has stayed in Hamilton County. He knew the death of the child. He didn't leave. He didn't run. He actually cooperated with law enforcement when they came and picked him up just a day or so ago."
The judge set Glenn's bond at $1 million for the murder charge.
The case is scheduled to go before a grand jury July 6.
Glenn's arrest record shows him connected to 10 cases in Hamilton County dating back to 2018. Most have been dismissed or closed.
He has two pending cases: Both involve arrests in May 2021. In those cases he faces charges of carrying concealed weapons, improperly handling firearms in a motor vehicle and illegal use or possession of drug paraphernalia.
The 6-month-old is one of six children killed in alleged abuse cases this year in Greater Cincinnati.
A Grand Jury indicted a grandmother named Latonya Austin, accused of dismembering her two-year-old granddaughter Zaila Lee.
Ludlow Police say in March, Lauren Baker's child, Jaxon Vogt, overdosed and died after getting into her stash of fentanyl.
The Hamilton County Justice Center was holding Glenn in custody Monday.
