MADISON COUNTY, Ala. – A man has been charged with capital murder after his infant son died at the hospital from “external force” Saturday.
Sergino Larenta Richard, 26, was arrested and charged with capital murder Wednesday. Madison County Sheriff Blake Dorning said his office was alerted to the suspicious death of an infant early Saturday morning. Based on the circumstances of the death, the Madison County Sheriff’s Office began an investigation and ordered an autopsy on the infant, according to Dorning.
Dorning said the autopsy concluded the infant’s death was the result of “external force.” After interviewing everyone who was present at the residence where the infant was living, Dorning said his office concluded that the infant’s father likely caused the infant’s death.
Richard is currently being held in the Madison County Jail with no bond.
