Closing arguments in child murder trial to begin Tuesday

On Tuesday, closing arguments will begin at 1:30 p.m. in the trial against Joshua Mobley.

Mobley is accused of second-degree murder in connection to Caiden Henry, a 10-month-old baby that he used to babysit. According to testimonies, the child was found a number of times with bruising and other injuries.

In 2017, Mobley and his wife picked up Caiden’s mother, and the child appeared to be sleeping in their backseat. Early next morning, Caiden was unresponsive and cold to the touch. His autopsy revealed hemorrhaging and bruising, and the medical examiner ruled the death as a homicide by blunt force trauma.

This story will be updated once a verdict is reached.
