WAYNESVILLE, N.C. (AP) — A North Carolina man has been charged in the death of his girlfriend’s 10-month-old baby.
News outlets report 22-year-old Dylan Brian Green was indicted Tuesday on a charge of felony intentional child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury.
The Haywood County Sheriff’s Office says preliminary autopsy findings indicate the July 18 death of Chloe Evans was a homicide.
Investigators say Green was at a home with Evans when deputies responded to a call of an infant in cardiac arrest. First responders reported seeing several injuries on the child. Evans was taken to a hospital where she died hours later.
The sheriff’s office says Green was in a relationship with Evans’ mother, but he’s not the child’s biological father.
It’s unclear whether Green had an attorney who could comment on his behalf.
