SC man charged in fatal beating of 2-month-old


CONWAY, S.C. (AP) – A South Carolina man is accused of fatally beating his 2-month-old son.

The Sun News reported Friday that 21-year-old Demond Marquise Hannah is charged with homicide by child abuse. Conway police say Hannah intentionally caused Karter Kha’Lil Hannah to suffer multiple life-threatening injuries. Authorities responded to a report of an unresponsive child at a hospital last month.

Karter was placed in emergency protective custody and died days later. Horry County Coroner Robert Edge says Karter died from head injuries, hemorrhaging, rib fractures and mass trauma. Authorities are awaiting final medical reports to determine if there will be additional charges.

It’s unclear if Hannah has a lawyer. A South Carolina Law Enforcement Division background check says Hannah was charged with attempted murder in 2014. That charge was later dropped.
