The Radcliff father accused in the death of his 1-month-old infant will see his second jury trial in March.

Jarrod D. Davis,  24, was indicted in January on charges of murder and first-degree criminal abuse. A jury trial was held in the case earlier this month, but on Oct. 18, a mistrial was declared after jurors were unable to reach a unanimous decision on the murder charge.

The 12 men and women found Davis not guilty of first-degree criminal abuse.

On Tuesday, Hardin Circuit Judge Ken Howard scheduled a second jury trial for March 19. He also set a back-up date of June 9 in the event another trial in March interferes.

A status review of the case is scheduled for March 4.

Davis remains lodged at Hardin County Detention Center in lieu of $500,000 cash.
