A man charged in the death of a 1-year-old girl is being held in jail on a hefty bond.

Bond for Atreyo Arzak Carter III of San Angelo has been set at $1 million, after he was charged with the first degree murder of Andrea Hernandez.

Carter was arrested Wednesday, and still remains in the Tom Green County Jail. He reportedly told police that the girl fell off of the bed, after her mother left Hernandez and two young siblings with Carter in a San Angelo motel last Saturday.

The girl was found dead when the mother returned, and an autopsy shows that she suffered multiple skull fractures, according to the San Angelo Standard-Times.
