Antrone Smith, 29, is charged with the murder of his 2-year-old son.

Police responded to the 3100 block of Bracken Woods Lane Friday night after receiving a call that a child was not breathing.

The child was transported to Children's Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

The autopsy results revealed the child died from blunt force trauma to the abdomen.  Police arrested Smith early Sunday morning.

FOX19 spoke with relatives of Mr. Smith who say the young boy suffered from a seizure disorder, and that they in no way believe Smith was responsible for his son's death. 

Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Crimestoppers at 352-3040.
