FRANKLIN, NC (FOX Carolina) -

A Macon County jury has indicted a 21-year-old Franklin man on a murder charge in the death of his infant son, according to the Macon County Sheriff’s Office.

Jesse Dean Wilson was arrested on Tuesday, deputies said.

The sheriff said the indictment came as a result of an extensive investigation conducted by the Macon County Sheriff’s office and after consultation with District Attorney Ashley Welch following the death of Wilson’s three-month-old son, Liam.

 "I am limited it what I can say regarding this investigation but will take this opportunity to publicly commend those involved in this investigation,” Sheriff Robert Holland stated. “This has been and continues to be a difficult investigation. Unlike most investigations, cases involving innocent children stay with even the most seasoned of officers. These are the cases that investigators go to sleep with at night and continue to think about the moment they wake up and throughout their day. I could never express in words just how much I appreciate their dedication, commitment and professionalism as they conduct a thorough investigation. Again, I commend all those involved including the District Attorney's Office as we move forward in an effort to seek justice for this innocent baby."

Wilson remains in custody in the Macon County Detention Center without bond awaiting his next court date.
