A Michigan father has been charged with murder in the death of his toddler son, but police have not said how the victim died.
Around 10:30 p.m. on Jan. 8., a Saginaw, Michigan, police officer assigned to a hospital was alerted to the emergency room, Mlive reported.
Lipsey-Jackson’s 20-month-old son, Tony Jackson, had been brought to the hospital by ambulance after a 911 call by Lipsey-Jackson, according to Mlive.
The child arrived with “severe injuries throughout his body” and was pronounced dead shortly after, Mlive reported.
Police brought Lipsey-Jackson and the child’s mother to headquarters for questioning, according to MLive.
After investigating, police detectives determined the child’s death was a homicide committed at the family’s home in the 1200 block of Dillon Street in Saginaw, Michigan, Mlive reported.
Officers arrested Lipsey-Jackson, and he is being held in the Saginaw County Jail, according to Mlive.
Police and prosecutors have declined to say how the child was killed, Mlive reported.
Prosecutors have declined to comment on if the child’s mother would face criminal charges, according to Mlive.
At an arraignment, Defense attorney Ann Chamberlain said Lipsey-Jackson has only completed an eighth-grade education and receives income from Social Security Disability Insurance, MLive reported.
Lipsey-Jackson is not married and has another child, according to MLive.
