$50,000 bond set for man charged with infant's murder

A Warner Robins man charged with the death of his child will not have to stay in jail while the case moves forward.

Houston County prosecutor Clif Woody says 26 year old Charles Michael Taylor had a bond hearing before Superior Court Judge George Nunn, Jr Thursday.

Taylor is charged with murder and aggravated assault in the death of his 11 month old son Peyton. The infant died in December 2013 from head injuries. Taylor told investigators he dropped Peyton on a tile floor, but autopsy results returned last week found the baby had several head injuries, which is not consistent with being dropped one time. Peyton Taylor's death was ruled a homicide.

Judge Nunn set bond at $25,000 for each of the two charges against Taylor -- a total of $50,000 -- and ordered him to be under house arrest with an electronic ankle monitor. T

aylor will only be allowed to leave home to report to work.

Woody also said their office has not received the entire case file yet.

According to Houston County's jail website, Taylor had not posted bond as of Thursday afternoon.
