McNabb was charged with malice, felony murder, aggravated battery and concealing a death, according to PEOPLE. Newton Coroner Tommy Davis said the autopsy determined the infant died from blunt force trauma to the head. The infant’s mother, Cortney Bell, stated in a 911 call that after feeding her daughter she fell asleep on the couch. Hours later Bell was woken up by her 2-year-old daughter telling her the baby was gone.

A search for the newborn ensued over the course of two days before her body was found in the woods nearby. According to investigators it was at this point 27-year-old Christopher McNabb, who was on the way with Bell to the Sheriff’s Office, jumped out of the vehicle and ran.

Apparently, this wasn’t the first 911 call to come from the family’s mobile home, Lot 31. According to The Covington News, transcripts reveal police received two 911 calls prior to the October 7 incident.

A resident of the mobile home park made a call in August claiming the tenants of Lot 31 were “busting windows out of the home.” On October 3rd, two 911 calls were made from Cortney Bell and her father, Tim Bell.
