FORT WORTH (AP) - A Springtown man is accused of beating his girlfriend’s child to death while babysitting last week at a Parker County home.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports that an affidavit filed Sunday states that 14-month-old Kamden Lee Bailey arrived at a hospital on Thursday afternoon with a complex skull fracture. The child died Friday.

Rodney Chase Pettigrew, 24, was arrested. He was booked into the Parker County Jail in Weatherford and remained jailed Sunday without bail.

Pettigrew was the only one in the house with Kamden. He faces a capital murder charge because the child was under 6 years old.

Pettigrew told a 911 operator that Kamden was on a counter when Pettigrew turned to get his food. In the affidavit, Pettigrew said Kamden fell about 4 feet.
