BIRMINGHAM — The Birmingham Police Department obtained a capital murder warrant against a man accused of killing a 1-year-old child.
Christopher Eugene Knight, 35, of Fairfield, is now being held in the Jefferson County Jail.
Officers from the East Precinct first responded to the scene in the 1100 block of Huffman Road on March 7, 2020. The child was taken to Children’s of Alabama with multiple injuries to the body. The boy died on March 10.
