KINGSLAND, Texas (KXAN) - A Llano County man was charged Thursday after the death of a 19-month-old.
Michael Len Grogg, 25, was charged with serious injury to a child, a first degree felony.
Paydin Len Grogg was flown to Dell Children's Medical Center on July 25 after EMS reported the child was losing consciousness and having difficulty breathing at a home in the 600 block of Gold Street in Kingsland. The child was taken off life support Sunday.
Further investigations into the child's death by Child Protective Services, the Llano County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers turned up signs of child abuse.
An autopsy performed by the Travis County Medical Examiner's office July 29 showed the child's injuries were not consistent with information provided by the Grogg.
Investigators met with doctors at Dell Children's and it was determined the injuries were from child abuse.
After additional interviews with witnesses, Grogg was arrested and booked into Llano County Jail. Bond was to be set Saturday.
