Lee County, AL (WTVM) -  A father is being charged with killing his infant son and assaulting his step daughter.

Authorities say, 18-year-old Barry Jones is charged with capital murder for the death of his 7-month-old son, Kevin Christopher Jones, and the first degree assault of his 3-year-old step daughter.

Investigators got involved when baby Kevin arrived at the East Alabama Medical Center Tuesday morning unresponsive, and not breathing.

Doctors say the infant had extensive injuries to his anus, chest, and rectum.

A short time later, the three year old arrived at the emergency room to be treated for internal bleeding from blunt trauma.
