Fayetteville, N.C. — A Fayetteville man was charged Friday with killing a baby girl left in his care in December, police said.
David Inman, 22, was charged with second-degree murder in the Dec. 5 death of 9-month-old Somiah Renee Prieto.
His bond was set at $250,000, and his first court appearance will be at 2:30 p.m. Monday.
Police began investigating the baby's death in April after an autopsy determined she died of a "non-accidental head injury."
Somiah's parents left her with a babysitter on Dec. 4 when they went out to celebrate a birthday. The sitter told police that she briefly left Somiah home with her boyfriend, and police said paramedics were later called to the home because the infant was unresponsive.
