BROOKLAND, AR (KAIT) - The Craighead County Sheriff's Department is investigating its first homicide of the year.
The department has charged a one-month-old's father, Sidney Campbell, with first degree murder Wednesday.
The baby boy's mother, Jennifer Campbell, has been charged with hindering apprehension.
"It started on Sunday morning at 7:40 when 9-1-1 call center received a call to an address in Brookland over an infant death," Craighead County Sheriff Marty Boyd said.
When first responders arrived to the home on Logan Street, police said the baby was already dead. "The baby died of blunt force trauma to the head. The baby was approximately 30 days old," Boyd said.
