Police said Daniels, who lives with his sister, had been lying in bed with his son when the baby began to cry.
Daniels' sister changed and fed the child and placed him back in the bed before leaving for a trip to Lakeland. Daniels was alone with the infant for most of Friday, according to authorities. Police said the alleged murder took place at the Orlando home Daniels shared with his sister
Daniels told police he put the child in a carrier and later noticed that he wasn't moving so performed CPR. Sure he did...
The man, who called 911, denied dropping, spanking or striking the child and insisted the baby had shown no signs of distress before becoming unresponsive.
The baby's mother lives in south Florida and had left the baby with his father for a two-week visit. According to Wesh.com, the sister admitted Daniels has a strong temper but said she had never witnessed him abusing the child or any of her children who also share the home.
Daniels remains in Orange County jail with no bond.
