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.
