The father of a a two-month-old boy has been charged with child abuse resulting in death after the child died from head injuries, the Arvada Police Department said today.
The suspect was identified as Brandon Vaughn Yancey who was arrested on Saturday.
Police were originally called to the 8100 block of Estes Court in Arvada on Aug. 10 after receiving a call that a child in the Yancey home was not breathing.
Based on a subsequent investigation and an autopsy conducted by the Jefferson County Coroner's Office, authorities believe the child died from what was termed "abusive head trauma".
The Jefferson County district attorney's office has charged Yancey with child abuse resulting in death and child abuse resulting in serious bodily injury, both felonies.
