Suspect Being Held For Murder Of 2-Year-Old

Biloxi Police say a suspect is being held in connection with the death of a 2-year-old baby.

So far, no charges have been filed, but the coroner has ruled the infant's death a homicide.

Harrison County Coroner Gary Hargrove says Christopher Jessie died Friday in Biloxi from blunt injuries. Hargrove says emergency crews were called to the child's home in Biloxi shortly before five yesterday afternoon because the child was not breathing.

Authorities say they cannot yet release the identity of the person being held.
