A man has been charged with murder after his 2-year-old son was found dead at home with injuries to his “face, neck, and torso” in early June, police said.

Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Baron Gerod Charles, Sr., 54, on Friday, according to WCNC.

He has a court appearance scheduled on Monday.

North Carolina paramedics were dispatched to a home near the 900 block of Horseshoe Lake Road on June 8, regarding a report of a child who was not breathing, according to Crime Online. 

The home is about 35 miles northwest of Charlotte. 

Emergency services personnel tried to revive the boy, Jeremiah Charles, “with CPR but were unable to do so,” the sheriff’s office said in a statement.

"The child was pronounced dead at the scene, and had sustained multiple injuries to his face, neck, and torso." 

Authorities at the home found another child, who was taken into care by the Lincoln County Department of Social Services.

Baron Gerod Charles, Sr., was charged with one felony count of murder and held without bond at the Harven A. Crouse Detention Center. 

The sheriff’s department’s investigation into the crime was ongoing on Friday. 

The sheriff’s office did not immediately respond to a request for more information from The Sun on Monday.
