TARRANT COUNTY (CBSDFW.COM) – A 26-year-old man was arrested in connection to the death of a two-month-old baby in Tarrant County, authorities say.
Joseph Matthew Welborn is currently in custody and is being held on a charge of capital murder in the death of two-month-old Christian Welborn.
According to the Tarrant County Medical Examiner, the baby died last Friday from blunt force injuries to the head. He was found at a residence in the 5200 block of Azle Avenue in Sansom Park.
“Anytime that full-grown adults hurt our babies, I think we all ought to be appalled and all ought to be disgusted,” said Tarrant County Sheriff Bill Waybourn.
The sheriff said it appeared Welborn was home alone with his kids at the time of the incident while Christian’s mother was returning from a shopping trip.
Welborn remains in jail on a 250-thousand-dollar bond.
