KEARNEY, Neb. (AP) _ A Kearney man has been arrested on several charges, accused of shaking his girlfriend's 5-month-old daughter.

22-year-old Trey Tickle faces four felony counts of intentional child abuse and a drug possession charge.  Authorities say the infant was treated in early December for vomiting and again Jan. 4. The baby was taken to an Omaha hospital for treatment, and doctors there concluded that her injuries were consistent with shaken baby syndrome. The doctors also said the girl had tested for ingestion and exposure to methamphetamine.

The child's mother, Brittany Schlund, faces two counts of felony child abuse.
