DETROIT (WWJ) – A Detroit father whose 8-month old infant son died of severe head injuries now faces murder charges.

Dominique Jones-Hardy, 31, told police had laid his son to bed and walked out of the room of their home, in the 11600 block of Lang, when he heard a loud noise and returned to find the infant on the floor.

Investigators say the child died of multiple head fractures.

The child’s mother was at work at the time.

Jones-Hardy was originally facing child abuse charges and will be arraigned on the new charges Thursday in Detroit’s  36th District Court.

He remains held in the Wayne County Jail.
