A DeSoto County man has been arrested and charged with capital murder in connection with the death of a 3-year-old child.

Christopher Waldrop, 30, has been charged with capital murder after the death of Baylee Allen, according to the DeSoto County Sheriff’s Department.

The death has been ruled a homicide and her injuries are consistent with “Shaken Baby Syndrome” according to law enforcement.

She was injured at 5592 Kaitlynn Drive in Walls, Mississippi and was unresponsive when she was taken by

ambulance to Le Bonheur Children’s Hospital in Memphis on Friday the 19th.

DeSoto County Sheriff Bill Rasco said Waldrup is the boyfriend of the child’s mother Heather Witschner, and the toddler was in Waldrop’s care at the time she was injured.

Witschner said on Facebook, “Well today was the worse day anyone could possibly imagine. I have lost my best friend! My little bug is going to a better place now”.

Waldrop is currently being held in the DeSoto County Adult Detention Facility with no bond.
