Man Accused of Killing Baby Awaits Extradition

FORT WALTON BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- A man accused of killing a
6-month-old baby in the Florida Panhandle has been arrested in
Alabama and is awaiting extradition.

Fort Walton Beach police say Charles Lenear Colvin Jr. was
arrested Thursday in Opp, Ala.
The 24-year-old is charged with murder in the death of Xavier
Boyd on Feb. 9.

According to a police report, Colvin told police the baby had
choked on some formula and stopped breathing. The baby died at a
Pensacola hospital.

A medical examiner concluded the baby died from blunt force
trauma to the back of his head.
Fort Walton Beach police say Colvin fled after an arrest warrant
was issued April 21.

Police spokesman Rick Hord says investigators recently received
tips that Colvin was in Alabama.
