MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - A Memphis man has been indicted in the death of his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son.

The Shelby County District Attorney General says a grand jury indicted 23-year-old Marterrius Hite last week on charges of first-degree murder in the perpetration of aggravated child abuse and neglect, aggravated child abuse and aggravated child neglect.

Media outlets that an autopsy found the child died of head and stomach injuries.
