BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — Police have arrested a Baton Rouge man in the death of his 6-month-old son.

Police say the father is accused of a pattern of neglect that included placing the baby in scalding bath water that left him with burns on more than 80 percent of his body.

23-year-old Curtis King was booked Monday on counts of second-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to a juvenile in the Nov. 6 death of Aiden King.

He also is accused of selling drugs out of his home and storing marijuana in the newborn's closet.

It was unclear whether King has an attorney.
