JEFFERSON COUNTY, IN (WAVE) – A Madison, IN man was arrested Sunday night in connection to the death of his infant son.

Indiana State Police said Christopher Allen Coy, 30, killed his one-month-old son Christopher using blunt force trauma to the head.

Investigators said the incident happened June 7. The infant was rushed to Kings Daughters Hospital in Madison and then flown to Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville where he died two days later.

Since then, detectives have been investigating the child's death, and that led to Coy's arrest about 9 p.m. Sunday. Coy is being held in the Jefferson County (IN) Jail in Madison on a preliminary charge of neglect of a dependent resulting in death. Investigators said additional charges could be filed later in the week.
