North Charleston Police say they've arrested a man on charges connected to his infant's death.

Troy A. Wilson, 29, is in jail at the Charleston County Detention Center, charged with homicide by child abuse.

Wilson's arrest Monday night, Aug. 20, comes after his infant child died Saturday.

NCPD officers were called to a report of an infant not breathing at an address on Ozark Street Aug. 18, North Charleston Police spokesman Spencer Pryor says.

Paramedics attending to the child were able to regain a pulse at the scene, but the infant ultimately died at MUSC later. police say.

Wilson was arrested Monday after police deemed the child's death suspicious and launched an investigation.

Affidavits provided by police Tuesday show the infant died of a skull fracture.

Wilson waived his right to a bond hearing Tuesday in magistrate court.
