Cherry Point Marine Charged With Killing Infant Son

A Cherry Point Marine is in jail, charged with murdering his infant son.

Jacksonville police say the three month old died at Pitt County Memorial Hospital Wednesday after being taken off life support.

Police charged Hassan Saeidifar with murder and felony child abuse yesterday.

Police believe the infant may have died from shaken baby syndrome. An autopsy said the child died from non-accidental trauma.

Saeidifar is assigned to the Marine Aircraft Group 14 at Cherry Point. He's in the Onslow County jail with no bond.
