Jacksonville Police say they have arrested the father of a baby found abandoned in a dumpster last August.

Twenty-eight-year-old Quincy Stone of the 500 block of North Clay was arrested last Wednesday for aggravated criminal sexual abuse. He’s accused of having sex with a girl who is now 17; she would have been 16 at the time.

The mother is accused of leaving her child in the dumpster and has been charged with attempted murder.

Jacksonville Police Lieutenant Rodney Cox says Stone was arrested based on DNA test results. He says a conception date was determined to have been December 2013.

Cox says no other charges are pending for Stone, who is still in custody at the Morgan County Jail.

Pre-trial for the 17-year-old Jacksonville girl’s attempted murder case is scheduled for May 7th.
