A Carthage man accused of killing his one-year-old daughter has attempted suicide in the city jail. Police say Jeffery Hahn was preparing to be transferred to the county lock-up when he tried to hang himself with a shower line. He was immediately taken to a local hospital. Hahn is charged with first-degree murder for the death of Anna Marie Hahn. Police found the 14-month-old girl dead early yesterday morning while responding to a domestic disturbance call. The Joplin-Globe newspaper reports Hahn was outraged over plans by the child’s mother to leave him.
