Andy Serrel Carter Jr., 26, was charged with child abuse resulting in death. The child was not his, officials said, but was the child of his girlfriend.

On July 2, Greenly police responded to a hospital for a possible case of child abuse. The victim had been flown to that facility after initially going to another medical center. Doctors diagnosed the infant with a severe brain bleed.
