WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A North Carolina man has been indicted on charges stemming from the death of a toddler nearly two years ago.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports (http://bit.ly/2rJ6uXD) a Forsyth County grand jury indicted 31-year-old Charles Thomas Stacks on multiple charges, including first-degree murder and intentional child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.

Police accused Stacks, who was caring for the boy, of biting various parts of 2-year-old Jaxson Sonny Swain’s body. Jaxson died on Aug. 19, 2015, three days after he was found in a bathtub. An autopsy report said Jaxson died from bleeding between the surface of his brain and its outer covering, which was caused by a blunt force head injury.

Stacks is jailed without bond. Online records don’t indicate if he has an attorney.
