A Tennessee police officer was arrested Thursday for allegedly causing injuries that killed his infant son, according to law enforcement officials.
Christopher Warren Page, 28, of the Paris Police Department is facing charges of first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse, according to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.
TBI says baby Gunner Page succumbed to life-threatening injuries five days after they were inflicted while he was in his Puryear home on Sep. 2. The agency began investigating the incident immediately at the request of 24th District Attorney General Matthew Stowe.
“During the course of the investigation, agents developed information leading to Page as the individual responsible for his son’s death,” the TBI said.
According to court documents, Page confessed to inflicting the injuries that claimed his son’s life.
“The cause of these injuries were intentionally committed,” read a criminal warrant provided by the Henry County Circuit and General Sessions Court.
Page is being held at Carroll County Jail. He was arranged on Friday when bond was set at $500,000.
A spokesperson for TBI stated the case is open and ongoing.
