Arrest in death of 4-month-old LaGrange child

LAGRANGE, Ga. – Authorities arrested Thursday afternoon 30-year-old Brandon Heard.  They are charging Heard with Murder and Cruelty to Children after an autopsy report ruled the death of four-month-old Skylar King a homicide.

The autopsy determined that the child died from blunt impact injuries of the head.

Authorities said they responded to a report of a non-breathing child on August 25.  Authorities transported the four-month-old the hospital where he was pronounced dead within an hour of arriving at the emergency room.

Heard will be held at the Troup County Jail until a court hearing takes place.
