CARIBOU — An 18-year-old man was indicted on a manslaughter charge by a Maine grand jury in connection with the 2009 death of his 3-month-old daughter.

Nicklas Jones of Limestone was 17 when he allegedly threw his daughter, Joselyn Jones, into her crib to stop her from crying. He was indicted Friday.

In May, Jones learned he would be tried as an adult. He pleaded not guilty last year and has been held at the Mountain View Correctional Facility in Charleston.

The Bangor Daily News reports Jones told police that he threw his daughter and she hit her head. The baby died four days later at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor of blunt force trauma to the head.
