DOVER, Del. (AP/WBOC)- A Dover man has been indicted on a murder by abuse charge in the 2017 death of his 1-year-old who son police say died from blunt force trauma.           

A grand jury handed down the indictment on 26-year-old Antonio Hughes last week. He's in custody awaiting trial.           

The boy's mother, Chanel E. Green, pleaded guilty last month to endangering the welfare of a child, and prosecutors dropped a criminally negligent homicide charge. She faces up to five years in prison.           

In 2016, Hughes was convicted of second-degree child abuse involving the same child and a no-contact order was issued.           

Delaware State Police investigators said that upon Hughes' release from prison, Green allowed him to care for the boy who was then injured and pronounced dead at Bayhealth Kent General Hospital.
