JACKSON, Miss.—A Jackson Police Department detective faces a capital murder charge in the death of a 1-year-old girl.

Police spokeswoman Colendula Green told The Clarion-Ledger ( that officers were called to the University of Mississippi Medical Center Sunday where Aubrey Brown of Jackson had injuries to her abdominal area. She was pronounced dead about two hours later.

Hinds County Coroner Sharon Grisham-Stewart said the baby died of internal hemorrhage because of severe blunt trauma.

Green said police arrested 36-year-old Natyyo Gray, who is assigned to the department's vice and narcotics unit. He was initially booked with felony child abuse but the charges were upgraded following the autopsy.

Police have not defined Gray's relationship to the child. It was unclear whether Gray has an attorney. top stories on Twitter
