A 22-year-old man has been arrested and charged with one count of cruelty to children in the first degree for injuries sustained by his two-month-old son.
The infant was transported to the children’s hospital unresponsive and with unexplained life threating injuries.

Joel Maggi was booked into the Hamilton County Jail.
The GBI and MCSO will continue its joint investigation. Once complete it will be turned over to the Murray County DA’s office for prosecution.
