FAYETTEVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – A 20-year-old was arrested in the death of a baby boy who died earlier this year in Fayetteville, Tennessee, about 80 miles south of Nashville.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation (TBI) says Casey Dollar now faces one count of second-degree murder after a grand jury indictment.

Authorities began investigating the death of 3-month-old Tony Carter on May 18 at an apartment on Winchester Highway.

TBI agents reportedly found the baby boy unresponsive. During their investigation, they say they learned Dollar was babysitting the child and was responsible for his death.

The 20-year-old was arrested Tuesday night and booked into the Lincoln County jail where he is being held on a $150,000 bond.
