A Liberty County man has been charged with capital murder in the death of a four-week old girl.
A spokesperson for the Liberty County Sheriff's Office said Brian Christopher Keith has been charged in the July 2, 2013 death of Nevaeh Keith.
The spokesperson said Brian Keith is not the child's biological father.
The charge came after a five-month investigation headed up by Sgt. Investigators Stephen Clappart and Josh Cummins, and an autopsy report which ruled the death "Homicide Compressional Death" which is a death due to damage to the respiratory system.
The murder warrant was served on Keith, who was already in the Liberty County jail on a charge of probation revocation, by lead Investigator Clappart.
The Sergeant also reported that Keith has a long criminal record.
