An Alabama man is charged with murder and sexual abuse after allegedly beating an infant to death.
The 8-month-old victim was taken off life support Monday after being in critical condition for six days, according to the Decatur Daily.
Cameron Elliott, 22, is charged in connection with the barbaric attack.
Decatur Police told the local paper he attacked the baby girl Tuesday night.
He’s reportedly being held on $260,000 bond for capital murder, sexual torture and various drug charges.
The baby was taken off life support at Children’s of Alabama in Birmingham Monday morning after two tests showed she was brain dead.
The assault charges against Elliot were swiftly upgraded, according to the report.
The penalty for murder of a child under 14 years old in Alabama is death or life without parole.
