News 2 got exclusive video of his arrival in Gallatin as deputies transported him from Graves County, Kentucky, where he was taken into custody last Thursday. Click here to see photos of Thacker and his return to Tennessee.

The 28-year-old waived extradition Monday in a Kentucky court room, leading to his return to Tennessee.

He’s accused of abusing his child in a Westmoreland home, about 50 miles northeast of Nashville, on April 30. The baby boy died a few days later and Thacker fled to Kentucky.

His charges include first-degree murder and child abuse.

Thacker is being held without bond. He’s due in court June 26 at 9 a.m.
