A grand jury has indicted an Okaloosa County, Florida father on charges connected to the death of his child.

The state attorney says, Jared Johnson faces first degree murder charges in the death of his 5-month-old.

Back in November 2016 Johnson was watching the child at his home in Shalimar, just north of Destin, when the baby's mother came home and found the boy laying lifeless.

Doctors at Fort Walton Beach Medical Center say the child had bruises all over his body.
