Alabama father charged with killing 2-year-old son

MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - The Montgomery Police Department says a
father has been charged with capital murder in the death of his
2-year-old son.

Police say officers were called to a home in Montgomery Tuesday
morning after a 2-year-old boy was found unresponsive.

Police say in a news release that the child, Preston Katan, was
found lying in his bed and was pronounced dead of unknown causes.

Officers say the child's father, 25-year-old Jonathan Katan, said he found his son wedged between the mattress and the bed's bumper guard.

Police say an autopsy revealed that the child died from blunt-force injuries to the head, and that the death was a homicide.

They say the father was interviewed and then arrested, and is being held in the Montgomery County jail without bond.
