HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) -

Police say a 2-week-old infant died after his father punched him for fussing while he was playing video games.

High Point police have charged 20-year-old Brian Jack Frazier with first-degree murder, and 20-year-old Stefany Renee Ash is charged with accessory after the fact of first degree murder.

According to CBS6, the prosecutor said in court that Frazier was allegedly up until 5 a.m. playing video games when the baby "got fussy."

The prosecutor then said that Frazier allegedly grabbed the child by the neck and punched the child in the face. According to the prosecutor, Frazier then went back to sleep.

Police say the two tried to hide the circumstances of the baby's death.

Frazier is being held without bond, while Ash is being held in lieu of a $1 million bond.

Charges were filed after the body of 2-week-old Khan Frazier was found at a High Point home on Nov. 27.

The father and mother tried to cover up the circumstances about their baby's death, authorities report.

Frazier and Ash appeared in court last week. No trial date has been set.
