SC man charged in baby's death

EASLEY, S.C. (AP) - A South Carolina man has been arrested in the death of a 7-month-old boy last week.

Multiple media outlets reported that police have charged 37-year-old Kevin Brian Adams of Piedmont with homicide by child abuse in the death of 7-month-old Braydon Alexander Odell of Easley.

Pickens County Coroner Kandy Kelley says the boy died May 20. Kelley says an autopsy this week showed the boy died from head trauma.

The arrest warrant accuses Adams of grabbing, shaking or violently moving the child.

Easley police Maj. Tim Tollison says Adams is in the Pickens County jail. It's unclear if he has an attorney.
