2nd Degree Murder Charges Filed Against Selah Man



Yakima County Prosecutors charge a Selah man with second degree murder in the death of his girlfriend's 23 month old baby.

Detectives say 22-year-old David Holbrook was holding the child and allegedly threw the baby up in the air with enough force to cause the baby's head to strike the ceiling.

The baby stopped breathing and later died at an area hospital.

Holbrook is currently being held on a one million dollars bail -- he will be arraigned next week.
