STANFORD — A Lincoln County grand jury has indicted a Stanford man on the charge he shook a 6-week-old infant. The infant's mother has also been indicted for complicity to assault.
Lucas Vinyard, 29, of 108 Star Ave. in Stanford, is accused of shaking the infant daughter of Kisha Gosser on Aug. 17. He has been charged with first-degree assault.
Police had not previously said anything about charges against Gosser, of 124 Star Ave., but the grand jury indicted her on one count of complicity to first-degree assault.
Police were notified of a possible child abuse case after Gosser brought her daughter to Fort Logan Hospital after the alleged assault.
Vinyard was arrested a week later on Aug. 24. According to an arrest citation, Vinyard confessed to shaking the infant.
The infant was transferred to Lexington for treatment of hemorrhages and broken ribs. She was released into the care of family members in late September.
State police have said it may take years to determine the extent of any permanent injuries suffered by the infant like brain damage or learning disabilities.
Vinyard is currently being held without bond in the Lincoln County Regional Jail.
