JACKSON, Miss.–Nine-month-old Corey Kees is dead and his mother Sarah Stricklin, 19, was charged Thursday with capital murder. The father, Jerry Kees, was charged with the same thing earlier this week.
Jackson Police said they were called to the family home Sunday, where they found the baby dead. An autopsy was done Monday and the examiner found the baby had a fractured skull, among other injuries that caused his death.
The state crime lab concluded the baby died of blunt force trauma.
Both parents are in jail until their first court appearance.
