DECATUR, AL (WAFF) -

A Morgan County grand jury indicted a Decatur man for the capital murder of an 8-month-old baby.

Decatur Police say Orlandos Deloney killed his girlfriend's child. He was arrested in January.

The indictment states Deloney caused the baby's death by "inflicting blunt force trauma".

Investigators say Deloney claimed the infant fell out of bed and stopped breathing.

Investigators said an autopsy found the baby's injuries were not consistent with that story.

Deloney will be arraigned June 18.
