MURFREESBORO, Ark. (AP) - A mental exam has been ordered for a southwest Arkansas man charged with second-degree murder in the death of his two-month-old daughter.
The Texarkana Gazette reports that the exam was ordered Monday for 32-year-old Frankey Tigue of Murfreesboro.
Tigue is charged with the November death of Francesca Tigue.
Court records show Tigue intends to use a defense of mental disease or defect.
Prosecutors say the infant died of brain injuries and had several fractured ribs.
