EDEN, NC (AP) -- A Rockingham County man is facing murder charges in the death of a 5-month-old baby.

Police have charged 31-year-old Steven Lee Shockley of Eden in the death of Dagan Matthew Gammon on June 5. Investigators say Shockley was in a relationship with Gammon's mother at the time.

Police were called to Morehead Memorial Hospital on June 2 to investigate a report of child abuse. Gammon was transferred to the Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem before he died.

Officials say the baby suffered head trauma consistent with child abuse.

Shockley turned himself into police Thursday and is being held in the Rockingham County jail. It was unclear if he has an attorney.
