JACKSON, Miss. (AP) - A former Jackson police officer accused in the death of his 1-year-old daughter appeared in court Wednesday, where he withdrew a motion asking for bond.
Natyyo Gray is charged with capital murder in connection with the Nov. 20, 2011, death of Aubrey Brown. The Hinds County coroner said Brown died of an internal hemorrhage after suffering blunt-force trauma to the abdomen.
Police said Gray was taking care of the baby when she was injured. The girl's mother had full custody of the baby. Gray's attorney contends the officer called 911 and was trying to revive the child when the ambulance arrived.
Gray worked for the Jackson Police Department as a vice and narcotics detective.
