HARBESON, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police have charged a Sussex County couple in their infant son’s death.

Police announced in a news release Friday that they have charged 37-year-old Doyle Hundley Jr. and 28-year-old Casey Layton of Harbeson with first-degree murder by abuse and endangering the welfare of a child.

Police say the investigation began May 23 after a 911 call reporting that 3-month-old Aiden Hundley was having a seizure. He was admitted to a hospital in critical condition and police say he was on life support until he died in September. An autopsy ruled Aiden’s death a homicide due to blunt force trauma to the head.

Police say the couple’s 2-year-old son is in Department of Services for Children, Youth and their Families’ care and doesn’t appear to be harmed.
