A Rocky Mount man has been indicted on charges of killing a 3-month-old infant.
20-year-old Xavier Craighead was indicted by the Franklin County Grand Jury on Monday. He was arrested Tuesday morning.
Craighead has been indicted for second-degree murder, child abuse, and child neglect.
Investigators say the baby died of a head injury on May 4. The child had a severe head injury, along with a subdural hemorrhage and a fractured skull. The investigation began from a telephone call from a local hospital after a baby was taken there for treatment.
Craighead is being held at the Franklin County Jail.
