A Dodge County couple is charged with killing a 3-year-old.

That's according to Todd Lowery, special agent in charge of the GBI's Eastman office.

He says David Smith, the child's biological father, is charged with child cruelty and felony murder.

His girlfriend, Kaiko Smith, is charged with cruelty and malice murder. He said the couple is not married, and Kaiko Smith is not related to the young victim.

Lowery says it happened last Friday in the Arthur Cooper trailer park in Eastman. Officers arriving on the scene found young Zachary Smith severely injured.

He later died at a local hospital and the couple was arrested that night.

Lowery would not discuss the child's injuries or the autopsy results.

He said the GBI's is still investigating the case.
