    LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KAIT) - THV 11's CNN affiliate KAIT report that a mother and father were charged in connection with their 1-month-old's death.

    The Craighead County Sheriff's Department charged Sidney Campbell Wednesday with first degree murder. The boy's mother, Jennifer Campbell, was charged with hindering apprehension.

    When Brookland police responded to the couple's home Sunday, the child had already died. Sheriff Marty Boyd said the baby died of blunt force trauma to the head, and the father kept changing his story.

    "The father has admitted he dropped the baby, unintentionally at this time. But through our investigation, it's still an open investigation at this time, but we are charging him with first degree murder..."

    Sheriff Boyd says both parents will appear for a bond hearing tomorrow.
