A father is on trial for the death of his baby.
Opening statements began this morning for Nathan Taylor. Investigators say the Lake City man beat his son to death. The incident happened in February of 2016. The five-month-old baby suffered major head injuries and later died from blunt force trauma.
Taylor originally faced homicide charges, but they were later dropped for evidentiary reasons. He’s now on trial for aggravated assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
The prosecution will call its next witness tomorrow.
