HAYWOOD COUNTY, N.C. — Authorities in North Carolina have charged a man with murder in connection with the 2019 death of his girlfriend’s baby.
According to WLOS and the Mountaineer, Dylan Brian Green, of Haywood County, initially faced a felony child abuse charge after 10-month-old Chloe Evans died July 18, 2019. Authorities said the child suffered arm, leg, rib and skull fractures; brain and eye bleeding; bruises; and other abrasions while Green was watching her, the Mountaineer reported in August 2019. The baby had methamphetamine and alcohol in her system, as well, officials said.
Green, who was the boyfriend of Evans' mother but not the girl’s father, has since been charged with first-degree murder, the news outlets reported Friday.
Green, whose next court appearance is set for Oct. 26, remains jailed without bond, according to the Mountaineer.
