Brady Ann Boyd and Austin Payne are now charged with felony murder. They were originally charged with cruelty to children and battery. Bartow County Sheriff Clark Millsap now says an autopsy showed multiple injuries from abuse, including a fractured skull and blunt force trauma to the little girl's stomach.
"The Medical Examiner says this appears to be the worst he's ever seen," Millsap said. "It's a systematic six to seven months of abuse on this young child."
Millsap says the couple could face even more charges.
