A Stafford County fire and rescue employee has been charged with murdering his 3-month-old son.
On Oct. 27 at 12:25 p.m., deputies were called to Richland Road, where they found the infant unresponsive, the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office said in a news release.
Deputies attempted life-saving measures until fire and rescue arrived and took the baby to the hospital, where he died, the release said.
The state medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide, but the sheriff’s office has not released details on how the child died.
On Oct. 28, detectives charged the baby’s father, 19-year-old Dallas Bowling, with second-degree murder and felony child abuse, the release said.
