A former Michigan man who served more than three years in prison for injuring his baby daughter in 2002 has been charged with murder after she died last year.

The Lansing State Journal reports 33-year-old old Marcus Claudius Oglesby was charged with murder this month. The Runnemede, New Jersey, man was returned to Michigan and is being held without bond.

Oglesby has said the injuries were accidental. The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment Wednesday to his lawyer.

Court records say a jury in 2003 convicted the former Lansing resident of second-degree child abuse. He'd been alone with the girl when she was hurt. Prosecutors say Keyaria Oglesby died Nov. 29 at age 13 and an autopsy determined her death stemmed from circumstances related to the abuse case.
