GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Greenville County deputies said they have upgraded the charge against an Upstate man accused of killing an 11-week-old child.

The coroner released his autopsy, saying the boy died as a result of non-accidental head injury, which Coroner Parks Evans classified as a homicide.

Deputies said the child was in the care of Tarran Marteious Edwards, 26, when he became unresponsive on Nov. 18.

Shortly after the child's death, deputies said they charged Edwards with abuse to inflict great bodily injury upon a child. Following the autopsy report, deputies said they upgraded Edwards' charge to homicide by child abuse.

Edwards is being held without bond at the county detention center.
