GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) - A Greenville man has been charged in the death of an 11-week-old infant earlier this week.

Greenville County Coroner Parks Evans says the cause of the baby's death will be determined in an autopsy.

Syre Umar Parks died Wednesday at Greenville Memorial Hospital.

Twenty-eight-year-old Tarran M. Edwards was arrested earlier this week and charged with abuse causing serious injury. It was not clear if he has a lawyer.

Master Deputy Jonathan Smith says deputies were called to a home Monday regarding a baby who was unresponsive. Medical personnel said the baby had been the victim of physical abuse.
