Macon police say a 3-month-old boy who died Monday was beaten.
They arrested the baby's father, Richard Allen Hicks III, 25, on charges of felony murder and felony cruelty to children.
Police were called Saturday night to a home in the 1100 block of Edna Place. They found the infant unresponsive.
Medical personnel on the scene determined the baby's injuries were "highly suggestive" of non-accidental injury or abuse, according to a news release from police spokeswoman Jami Gaudet.
Hicks was first arrest on Saturday and charged with child cruelty. He bonded out early Sunday morning.
Police say Hicks was arrested Monday and charged with felony murder after the baby was declared dead that morning.
