A grand jury handed down the indictment against Christopher Halver-Gene Hansen earlier this month, Coweta County District Attorney Herb Cranford said.

Hansen, 31, of Newnan, was arrested after officials said he caused the death of Sebastian Livingston last year. The child suffered non-accidental trauma after a June 17, 2017, incident at home, doctors told investigators.

At a Newnan hospital, Hansen first told a deputy that Sebastian was choking, according to the report. The child was then flown to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where he was placed on life support, officials confirmed.
