A 25-year-old was arrested Sunday for killing a 4-month old baby. 

Markeise Caldwell was arrested Sunday and charged with Capital Murder. He is the boyfriend of the victim’s mother and had no relation to the child. 

Caldwell said, “I over-drank. I have a drinking issue and I messed up real bad.”

Mobile Police say, around 8:31 a.m. officers responded to Providence Hospital in reference to a report of possible child abuse to a 4-month-old victim. The child later died of blunt force trauma.

According to court documents, the 4-month-old was identified as Kendrick Cole. 

Court documents uncovered by News 5 show that Markeise Caldwell is also charged with the aggravated child abuse of Kendall Cole, a 15-month-old child. Mobile Police say the two incidents are not connected. News 5 confirmed the two children are brothers.

On May 6th, Caldwell had a message to the world as he was escorted to jail, “Y’all I’m not this person. I’m really not. I’ve allowed my self to get spiritually weak in my faith and I hurt somebody I love too.”

He continued, “Sorry ain’t even the word. I want to say to my girl and her family and my family and everybody else I’m not that person y’all and I just want to let y’all know I’m gonna go and get my mind right cause I’m mentally gone.”

Caldwell is being held without bond.
