DETROIT (WWJ) – A young Detroit father is facing murder charges in connection with the death of his 1-year-old son.

An EMS unit and police responded to a call that a child at a home on the 8000 block of Braile on the city’s west side was not breathing.

The boy was pronounced dead at the scene.

The medical examiner ruled the death a homicide, but police aren’t saying how the child was killed.

Elijah Morris, 20, was arraigned Friday afternoon on two felony charges: one count of child abuse-first degree, and one count of felony murder.

He was remanded to the Wayne County Jail pending a preliminary hearing set for Friday, July 26.

The child’s name was not released.
