St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – Charges have been filed Tuesday against a 21 yr old St. Louis man for abuse and neglect of a child that resulted in death.

Dearis Ricks of St. Louis, who was caring for the child at the time, was arrested and taken in for questioning.  Three month old Skyy Ricks, was taken to an area hospital, but pronounced dead after being found unresponsive at home on Monday. St. Louis County officers responded to a call in the 10-thousand block of Spring Garden where a three month old child was unresponsive.

Autopsy results revealed the cause of death to be head trauma. Ricks later confessed to striking the infant’s head against a hard object, he is currently being held on a $200,000 cash only bond.
