A man is behind bars after the death of a toddler in Elmore County is ruled a homicide.
27-year-old Joey Grizzell has been charged with murder in connection with the February death of a 13-month-old child.
Autopsy results received this week show the child died of head trauma.
Sheriff's officials say Grizzell had been keeping the child at a residence on Shelton Place.
He told investigators the child slipped out of his hand and fell to the floor.
The child was pronounced dead at Children's Hospital in Birmingham.
