Infant Killed

An Alabama man faces capital murder charges after allegedly attacking and killing his six-month old son because he wouldn't stop crying.

Police say Christopher Thomas Johnson beat, bit and asphyxiated Elias Johnson Sunday morning at his duplex in Atmore.

They also say the 33-year-old has an extensive criminal record and admitted to killing the infant.

Investigators say it appears the child had been abused over a long period of time.
