A father is accused of physically abusing his baby girl so badly she's now clinging to life.

The Johnston County Sheriff's Office has charged 24-year-old Saquana O'Neal Jackson, of Campground Road, Selma, with felony child abuse.

Investigators said his 3-month-old  daughter was rushed to WakeMed Tuesday -- where doctors discovered she had bleeding on the brain.

According to arrest warrants, the baby's injuries were both old and new.

Jackson remains in the Johnston County jail under a half million dollar bond.
