OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Authorities in Oklahoma City have added a murder charge against a 22-year-old man accused in the beating death of an infant.

KOCO-TV reports that the Oklahoma County district attorney’s office filed a first-degree murder charge Tuesday against Michael Lee Bradley. He’s being held without bond at the Oklahoma County jail.

He was arrested July 1 on a complaint of child abuse after 8-month-old Amelia Tuell was found unresponsive at her home with several injuries. The child died the next day.

Authorities say Amelia’s mother was running an errand and was not home at the time.

They say Bradley claimed he had fallen asleep and awoke to find the child slumped on the floor. He picked her up but then accidentally dropped her.

Online jail records don’t indicate whether he has an attorney.
