Charges have been upgraded against a Birmingham man charged in the weekend death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son.
Christopher Eugene Knight, 35, is now charged with capital murder in the slaying of toddler Jayden McGee. He was initially charged with aggravated child abuse and has been in the Jefferson County Jail since Tuesday.
Jayden, who just turned 1 on Feb. 28, was rushed to Children’s of Alabama Saturday after he was unresponsive and having trouble breathing. Doctors there, as well as a subsequent autopsy, found severe head injured. The boy remained on life support until Tuesday when the support was removed. He was pronounced dead a short time later.
