FRANKLIN COUNTY, AL (WAFF) - Franklin County investigators arrested a Lawrence County man and charged him in the death of his son.

Pablo Diego Larios, 23, was charged with capital murder in the 2011 death of his 3-month-old son.

Franklin County Sheriff Shannon Oliver said they just received the autopsy results on the baby this week.

Until they got those reports, he said they were at a standstill.

Investigators say emergency crews responded to a call back in July of 2011 at the Town and Country Trailer Park.

They say the 3-month-old child was not breathing and crews rushed him to a local hospital where he later died.

Oliver said the baby died from being violently shaken.

He said he is glad his department can provide closure for the family but expresses his concern for the delay from forensics.

"The disturbing part is this took two years, almost two years to put closure to a very serious case. We're told it's budget cuts and they just don't have the man power like they used to," Oliver said.

Larios is being held in the Franklin County Detention Center without bond.
