GWINNETT COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

Gwinnett County police have charged a 28-year-old man with killing his 3-month-old daughter.

Investigators said Reuben Valrie called emergency personnel on Wednesday and said his daughter Aliyana had stopped breathing.

EMS and Gwinnett County police officers responded to the home on Sweetwater Road.

Aliyana was taken to Gwinnett Medical Center and was pronounced dead.

On Thursday, the Medical Examiner's Office conducted an autopsy and discovered significant trauma on Aliyana's body.

After homicide investigators took the case, detectives developed probably cause to believe that Valrie had caused Aliyana's injuries by shaking her.

Valrie was charged with cruelty to children and felony murder. He was taken into custody without incident and remains at the Gwinnett County Detention Center without bond.
