ST. CHARLES, Mo. (AP) - A St. Charles man charged in the death of a 4-month-old girl now faces additional charges, including first-degree murder and forcible sodomy.
The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported Monday that 24-year-old Jordan Lafayette Prince is also charged with child abuse in the baby's December 2012 death. He was originally charged with second-degree murder and endangering the welfare of a child.
Court records show that the cause of death was asphyxiation, but the child also suffered serious injuries related to sodomy, which caused internal bleeding.
Prince told police he became frustrated with the baby because she wouldn't stop crying. He's been jailed on 150,000, cash bail.
A lawyer representing Prince didn't immediately return a call seeking comment Monday.
