A man is behind bars without bond, accused of killing his newborn daughter. Mitchell Newsome was arrested Saturday and is charged with murder. Randoph County Sheriff David Cofield says a woman called dispatchers to report her six-week-old baby had stopped breathing. The baby, Madison Newsome, was transported to Wedowee Hospital.  After examining the baby, employees contacted deputies saying abuse may have been involved. Madison Newsome was taken to Children’s Hospital where she later died. Authorities believe Mitchell Newsome violently shook Madison, causing a brain injury, which led to the baby's death.
