Kentucky Man Charged in Death of Grandson

Police have charged a man with reckless homicide in the death of his 2-month-old grandson, MSNBC reported.
David Cull, 50, apparently passed out Wednesday evening on top of infant Xavian, who was asleep in a chair. Cull is believed to have been intoxicated from taking too much prescription medication.
When a family member woke Cull around 5 a.m. Thursday, the infant’s grandmother, Donna Marie Cull, found the child unconscious.
"His lips were purple, and he had four purple stripes down the side of his face,? she said. “I blew in his face and he wouldn't breathe. His hands were clenched, and he was cold." (WLKY)
A 911 call was placed aroud 7:30 a.m. The county coroner confirmed the infant was dead, MSNBC reported.
After interviewing family members, police arrested David Cull Thursday morning. According to WLKY, he is being held at the Carroll County Regional Detention Center.
The Culls had custody of Xavian and his 5-year-old half-sister. Child Protective Services removed the girl from the home and placed her with relatives Thursday afternoon, WLKY reported.
