Jasper man indicted after child's death

A Jasper County man has been indicted on injury to a child charges for the death of a 3-month old boy.

A grand jury indicted Justin Havard, 23, on one count of injury to a child and one count of reckless conduct.

Officials say Havard was watching the child and his four-year-old sister.  He called 9- 1-1 stating the child was choking. Emergency crews found the child to be unresponsive.

The baby was taken to a hospital where doctors found the child's injuries not to be consistent with an accident. An autopsy determined the child died of severe blunt force trauma to the head.
