A Hannibal man's accused of injuring a baby multiple times, and is facing Child Abuse charges. 

Hannibal Police said Friday that 22-year old Cody Adkerson "caused physical injuries to a 3-month old baby on multiple occasions while the baby was in his care." They add that the baby is expected to fully recover from the injuries suffered. Adkerson was charged Wednesday in Marion County with three counts of Abuse or Neglect of a Child.
