— A Harnett County man has been charged with killing his 6-month-old son.

Authorities said Larry Cousins admitted that he attacked the infant Friday afternoon while the baby's mother was inside a Cumberland County store.

The infant died Monday, and autopsy results show the boy died from being severely shaken. The autopsy also showed the boy had been injured before Friday's incident.

Cousins also faces child abuse charges.
