Chattanooga police say a man is charged with criminal homicide over the death of an infant on Monday.

It happened in the 2200 block of East 27th Street Courts around 11:15 a.m.

The report states that Dunton originally told police that his infant daughter fell down 13 stairs while in a car seat.

The report says Dunton changed his story once he was presented with conflicting evidence.

The report says Dunton confessed to "violently" shaking the child because she would not stop crying and then put her back in her car seat.

The report says Dunton told police he placed the car seat on stairs when he his 11-month-old son began screaming and said he accidentally kicked the car seat down the stairs while trying to get to his son.

The report says Dunton told police he picked up the baby to check on her and did not seek medical attention.

The report says Dunton told police that shaking the baby "caused the most harm and injury."

Dunton is charged with Criminal Homicide and Aggravated Child Abuse.

He is being held at the Hamilton County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court on March 11.
