A Carroll County man has been charged with the murder of his two-year-old son.
26-year-old Douglas Allen has been charged in connection with the February 19 death of his son.
According to Kentucky State Police, Allen’s girlfriend- and also mother of the child- called 911 the morning of February 19, telling dispatchers the child had been discovered dead in his bed.
Toxicology reports show the boy had extremely high levels of oxycodone in his system, and detectives believe Allen gave his son the narcotic on the night of February 18.
Allen is now in the Carroll County Detention Center.
