Sheriff-Coroner's office: Baby killed by 'traumatic injuries'

BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (KBAK/KBFX) — An 8-month-old baby's death has turned into a homicide investigation.

The Kern County coroner's office said late Monday that Alfredo Jesus Jacobo died in September of blunt-force traumatic injuries to his head and face. He died Sept. 22 at Children's Hospital Central California north of Fresno, but the injuries were reportedly suffered at a home on Lake Street in Bakersfield.

The Kern County Sheriff's Office is the investigating agency, and it hasn't released details of its investigation.
