Twenty-three-year-old Fort Hood, Texas resident Charles Anthony Bartley has been incarcerated while awaiting trial for his felony charge of assaulting a minor with a deadly weapon, the Killeen Daily Herald reported on May 14.
It was the ruling of United States Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Manskre that Bartley not be assigned any bond until he can be tried in court due to the gravity and sensitivity of the case he faces. The child’s mother said she found Bartley smothering her 14-month-old son’s face with a pillow on Wednesday, May 7 as she came down the stairs. The child is Bartley’s stepson. Upon seeing that she witnessed the incident, Bartley left his home and surrendered to military police.
