BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – There has been a turn in a case we've followed from the very beginning.
Wednesday Adam Markos will be arraigned for the murder of a 4-year-old boy after the case was dismissed five years ago.
The prosecutor says he gave the cold case a second look after it sat open for years and couldn't figure out why Adam Markos hadn't been charged.
Wednesday Markos will be charged with the murder of the little boy.
4-year-old Dominic Munoz died in August of 2007 after being injured a week earlier.
At court hearings back in 2007 officials testified that they found scrapes and bruises on the boy's body and an autopsy showed he died from head injuries.
The boy's mother also testified that Markos was watching him the night he was injured.
Charges against Markos were dropped in May 2008 the day before he was scheduled to stand trial.
Then Tuesday he was re-arrested for the death. Markos is facing open murder and felony child abuse charges.
He's expected to be in court at 1:30 Wednesday. We will be there and keep you updated.
