Covering Lee County: Charges filed against man accused of killing a baby

Opelika, Ala. (WSFA) -- On Wednesday, 24-year old Kenneth Jones appeared in court and a judge officially charged him with capital murder.

According to our news partner WTVM, court documents show investigators say Jones admitted to throwing the 14 month old boy into the corner of the sofa.  The documents say he heard a clunk sound that sounded like the baby's head or back hitting the wooden part of the sofa.

Jones's brother, Nathan Flurry feels the incident may have been an accident. "I've seen him with his kids, I've seen him with his ex-girlfriend. He's great with kids. I don't see whatsoever how he could have possibly done this intentionally".

Kenneth Jones has not entered a plea yet.
