MARSHALL (KYTX) – A Harrison County grand jury has indicted a Marshall man on a capital murder charge in connection with the death of a 21-month old child.
27-year-old Deterryon Tyrell Kelly was indicted by the grand jury Thursday for the May 6, 2014 death of the toddler.
First responders were called to the Best Western on East End Boulevard South in Marshall because a toddler was unresponsive.
The child was taken to Good Shepherd Medical Center in Marshall where he later died. Kelly is the boyfriend to the deceased child's mother.
A capital murder warrant was issued for Kelly and he was arrested June 4, 2014, after autopsy results came back.
