BLUEFIELD, W.Va. (AP) — Police have arrested a Bluefield man in the death of his 7-week old child.
Bluefield police Detective K.L. Adams says 23-year-old Cassidy Byrd was arrested late Tuesday night at his mother's residence. Byrd tried to escape from a bedroom window before being taken into custody.
The Bluefield Daily Telegraph (http://bit.ly/1lEpH4J) reports Byrd is charged with the death of a child by a parent, custodian or guardian by abuse. Adams says an autopsy showed the baby died of head injuries.
Byrd was being held on $100,000 bond in the Southern Regional Jail. Jail records didn't indicate whether Byrd has an attorney.
