- A Newton County father is expected to be indicted in the death of his newborn daughter. 

Investigators said Christopher McNabb hit 15-day-old Caliyah McNabb in the head with an unknown object, which killed her. 

Criminal warrants indicate McNabb wrapped Caliyah in a t-shirt and a blanket, then placed her in one of his drawstring carry bags before taking her to the woods and attempting to conceal her body with debris.

McNabb is being held in isolation and deputies confirm he is on suicide watch. He did not ask for an attorney even though he is charged with felony and malice murder, aggravated battery, and concealing a death.

The felony charges he faces will be considered by the Newton County grand jury, which meets Friday afternoon.
