Man indicted in 2020 death of infant in Prattville

PRATTVILLE, Ala. (WSFA) - A grand jury has indicted a man charged in a Prattville infant’s death, court records show.

According to court records, Christopher Lamar Hundley faces a manslaughter charge following an indictment by a grand jury in March.

Hundley was initially charged with murder, but the case was bound over to a grand jury.

Hundley is accused of assaulting his pregnant wife, which resulted in her going into labor and the infant’s death, Prattville police previously said.

Hundley was released on bond but later had his bond revoked after being arrested in a separate incident.

“We have one victim in this case, and my victim is 6 feet under the ground. The mother in this situation is, if you want to call her an uncooperative victim, but we do not have a charge where she is the victim. She has not cooperated if you want to call it that, but we’ve proceeded under one theory in the case and I have one victim. It’s a true victim, and that victim is 6 feet underground. And everything we’re doing is trying to honor the memory and justice for him,” said CJ Robinson, chief assistant district attorney for the 19th Judicial Circuit

A first appearance is scheduled to take place on April 19.
