Brunswick Co. Grand Jury indicts man for killing 3-year-old

BOLIVIA, NC (WWAY) -- A Brunswick County Grand Jury indicted Montey Murray for first degree murder and child abuse in connection with the death of 3-year-old Jaron McAllister.

Investigators say Murray was babysitting the boy when he died in March 2012.

An autopsy shows McAllister died from internal bleeding due to blunt force trauma.

District Attorney Jon David says this day has been a longtime coming. He says Murray has been continuously incarcerated since the incident which has allowed investigators the luxury of time to be thorough and extensively investigate the facts.

"I say this not only as a district attorney but a father myself, when you are dealing with the death of a 3-year-old child it gets a lot of people in the system motivated to do everything they can to seek maximum justice and full justice. I think that this is an important first step in the process today," said David.

The District Attorney said it is too early to determine what punishment he will pursue.

Murray is being held without bond and is due back in court September 10th.
