A Durham man has been charged with murder following the death of his 2-month-old daughter earlier this month.
Alex Lee Noel was arrested May 7 and initially charged with felony child abuse. Noel, 22, was indicted on a murder charge Monday, said police spokeswoman Kammie Michael.
Noel’s daughter, Karina Noel, was taken to a hospital on May 7, and staff called police because of the nature of her injuries, Michael said.
Karina died the following day.
