(Meredith) - A Kentucky father became enraged after losing a video game and allegedly punched his infant son in the head, which lead to the child's death.
Anthony Trice, 26, was watching his 1-month-old son Friday night at a home in Louisville when he began losing the game, according to an arrest citation obtained by the Courier Journal.
Trice eventually threw the video game controller and then struck his baby in the head with his fist, police said. Moments later, the dad picked up his infant son and walked to the kitchen to prepare a bottle when he dropped child, according to court documents.
After Trice realized the baby was "in distress," he reportedly called 911. The infant was taken to Norton Children's Hospital, where he died Sunday evening.
Trice was originally charged with first-degree criminal abuse of a child, but that charge was upgraded to murder, the Courier Journal reported.
His next court appearance is scheduled for Monday.
