A DeKalb County man is charged with murder after police say he drowned his 10 year-old adopted son.

Leon Williams Sr. is facing child cruelty charges in the incident, which allegedly happened on April 28.

Police say Williams began performing CPR after finding his adopted son, Kentae Williams, unresponsive.

Kentae later died at the hospital.

A witness told police she overheard Williams telling his son earlier in the day that "You are going to die tonight".

It is unclear when Williams is expected in court.
