MARION, Ark. (KAIT) – An Arkansas man will spend a decade in jail following a conviction in Crittenden County.

A news release from Second Judicial District Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington states Terrance A. Washington, 26, of West Memphis was convicted of first-degree battery by a jury Thursday after a two-day trial.

A circuit judge sentenced Washington to 10 years in the Arkansas Department of Correction.

The trial is a result of an investigation by the West Memphis Police Department involving a three-month-old baby in Nov. 2013.

The mother of the infant reportedly left the baby to go to work and returned home to find the child was unresponsive. The baby was immediately taken to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

Police later learned that the infant was left in the care of Washington.
