HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Bond was granted for a man charged in the death of his 3-year-old son.

Maurice Cartwright was arrested in 2012. Investigators believe he choked his son which caused brain trauma and severe bleeding.

Police first charged Cartwright with aggravated child abuse but upgraded his charges when the child died May 2, 2012.

A judge set his bond at $400,000 Thursday. Prosecutors argued that Cartwright is a flight risk, with a criminal history in Morgan and Lawrence Counties, and drug convictions in Tennessee.

Cartwright is charged with capital murder. If bond is posted, Cartwright will have to wear an ankle bracelet.
