Trial to begin in murder case of Paris infant


By Scott Harvey

Paris – A jury is to be chosen Wednesday in the murder trial of Darrell Wayne Hood, of Paris, charged in the death of his infant son.

The 27-year-old Hood and the child's mother brought the unresponsive baby boy to Paris Regional Medical Center last September. But doctors said there was evidence of blunt force trauma to the child, contradicting Hood's claims he dropped the 18-month-old. Authorities say the baby was reportedly punched in the chest several times.

A week later, Hood was charged with murder.
