An East Texas man is behind bars after autopsy results link him to an infant's death.

Back on May 6, 2014, Marshall Police received reports of a baby that was unresponsive at the Best Western Hotel located in the 5200 block of East End Blvd South in Marshall, Texas.

Upon arrival, paramedics found a 21 month old baby who was immediately taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center-Marshall where he later died. An autopsy was ordered by Justice of the Peace Precinct #2 Judge Clarice Watkins. 

Tuesday, after authorities received results of the autopsy, a Capital Murder Warrant was prepared for Deterryon Tyrell Kelly of Marshall, the boyfriend of the deceased child’s mother.

Kelly was arrested before 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night  in Marshall and booked into the Harrison County Jail on the charge of Capital Murder.

He was booked into the Harrison County Jail on $1,000,000 bond.
