SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (AP) – A 29-year-old Springfield man is charged with second-degree murder and child abuse in the death of a 7-month-old child.

The Springfield News-Leader reports Marc Carrier was charged Saturday after police say the infant was injured while in Carrier’s care.

A probable cause statement says first responders tried unsuccessfully to revive the baby at a Springfield home early Saturday.

An autopsy found the child suffered brain injuries “consistent with being shaken.”

In an interview with detectives, Carrier allegedly told police he accidentally dropped the child.

The child’s name and gender were not released.

Police reports say five other juveniles, all 6 or younger, were present when police arrived at the home.

Online court records do not name an attorney for Carrier.
