JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA: According to Jacksonville police, a Marine has been detained in connection with the death of his four-month-old kid. The child's father, Christian Mark McGill, was taken into custody on December 22 after police reacted to a medical call about breathing difficulties.

The infant's death was investigated by the Jacksonville Police Department, which also made the arrest as per WITN. Reports said that investigators responded to a call from 123 Zack Circle, Apartment B, to attend to a trouble breathing medical call. On arrival, Jacksonville Fire and Emergency Services, Onslow County, EMS, and the Jacksonville Police Department performed life-saving measures on an unresponsive four-month-old.

The Jacksonville Police Department then conducted an investigation into the case and detained the active Marine father in connection with the death of the child and later made the arrest, the WNCT report mentioned.
