HAMPTON, Va. (AP) - A Hampton man has been charged with murder in the death of his infant son.

Police say 23-year-old Montreaz Berry was arrested Thursday, more than six months after his son’s death.

Authorities say Berry assaulted 5-month-old Chandler Berry at a Hampton home and then called police to report an unresponsive baby on Jan. 27. The infant died in a hospital two days later from blunt force head injuries.

Investigators believe the two were the only people inside the home during the incident.

Montreaz Berry is charged with one count each of murder and abuse and neglect of children. It is unclear whether he has an attorney.
