Anderson police said Wednesday night that they've made an arrest in the 2012 death of an 8-month-old boy.

Christopher Foster, 20, of Anderson was charged with homicide by child abuse in the death of his son, Leon, police said.

Anderson police spokesperson Lt. Tony Tilley told FOX Carolina that a SLED investigation determined Foster was responsible for the child's death.

Tilley said Leon Foster died in June 2012 at his home on Edgewood Avenue, after officers were called to respond to a child suffering cardiac arrest.

Christopher Foster was arraigned in court Thursday morning and will appear in court again on April 5.
