TALLADEGA, Ala. (AP) - Talladega police say a man is charged with capital murder in the death of his 8-month-old daughter.

The Daily Home (https://bit.ly/1g4eCYi ) reports 22-year-old Eric Rotray Payne-Blakney is being held without bond.

He is charged in the death of his daughter on June 11, 2013.

Police Capt. John McCoy says the girl suffered fatal head injuries. She was taken first to a hospital in Talladega and then transferred to a hospital in Birmingham, where she died.

Court records aren’t available to show whether Payne-Blakney has a lawyer. Documents show his only previous scrape with police was a speeding ticket last year.
