GADSDEN, Ala. (AP) - Etowah County sheriff’s officials say a man has been arrested in the death of his 3-week-old son and the child’s mother is also sought by police on a murder warrant.

Sheriff Todd Entrekin said in a statement Wednesday that 35-year-old Alberto Rivera was arrested and charged with capital murder in the death of a boy who suffered blunt force trauma in early September.

Authorities say Rivera is being held without bond in the county detention center.

Entrekin says a murder warrant is also out for the infant’s 33-month-old mother. It’s unclear whether Rivera has an attorney.
