CLAYTON, Mo. (KMOX) — Murder charges are being sought for Florissant man in the death of a three year old boy.

22-year-old Zachary Cook was originally charged with “Felony Child Abuse” after investigators discovered the child had been shaken.

Last week police responded to a call of an accidental injury of a young child in the 2400 block of Blue Heron in Florissant. The child was suffering from a head injury, and airlifted to St. Louis Children’s Hospital.

A five year-old child also living with Cook has been placed in protective foster care pending further investigation.
