A 17-year-old Chesterfield County father has been charged with murder in the death of his infant son.
The teen, whose identify was being withheld by police because of his age, was arrested and charged Monday, county police said.
At about 11:45 p.m. on June 22, police and emergency medical crews responded to call of an infant not breathing at a home in the 4000 block of Clipper Bay Drive, authorities said. The 2-month-old baby was taken to an area hospital and later transferred to VCU Medical Center, where he died of injuries he suffered as a result of shaken-baby syndrome, police said.
The teen is being held in the Chesterfield Juvenile Detention Center pending a hearing in Chesterfield Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court.
