Baby Abuse Case Now Death Investigation

A baby, who police say was the victim of child abuse, has died. Now authorities are awaiting on an autopsy to determine if other charges should be brought against the child's babysitter.

Cumuriya Cobb died at Pitt County Memorial Hospital on Tuesday, a day after his first birthday.

The baby was brought to the Craven Regional Medical Center December 17th with serious head trauma. Ishmael Worthington was charged with intentional child abuse inflicting serious bodily injury. Police say Worthington is not related to the baby, but lived in the same house as the boy.

Investigators say an autopsy should be completed today in Pitt County.

Worthington has been in the Craven County jail on a $500,000 bond since his initial arrest.
