Bibb County grand jurors have indicted a 24-year-old Bibb County man on a charge of cruelty to children.
Felix Alberto Medellin, of Houston Road, is charged with causing his 3-month-old son to receive a “non-accidental impact” head injury, including a skull fracture, May 14, according to the indictment that was filed Tuesday in Superior Court.
Medellin was supposed to be watching the infant while his wife went to the store. He told Bibb County sheriff’s investigators that the child fell from his lap, but doctors at an Atlanta hospital told authorities the injuries weren’t consistent with Medellin’s story.
He is being held at the Bibb County jail, according to jail records.
