    Caliyah McNabb murder trial: Christopher McNabb tears up during playing of 911 call


    Dad was nervous, fidgety after baby reported missing, deputy testifies

    A Newton County man accused in his 2-week-old daughter’s death acted nervous and fidgety after the child was reported missing, a deputy testified Tuesday.

    Newton County Sheriff’s Deputy Joshua Hicks responded to the family’s home on Oct. 7, 2017 after the baby’s mother, Cortney Bell, reported her missing. About 30 minutes after Hicks arrived, Christopher McNabb showed up looking disheveled, the deputy testified. McNabb said at the time that he had been searching for 2-week-old Caliyah. Her body was discovered 900 yards from the family’s front door.

    GBI doctor: Newborn Caliyah had multiple skull fractures

    She was wearing a purple onesie that read, “Stay away boys, my daddy works out,” and a men’s tank top had been placed over the head of little Caliyah McNabb. But even before conducting the autopsy, a GBI doctor could tell how the 2-week-old Newton County baby had been injured, the doctor testified Wednesday.

    “The head was enlarged visually,” Lora Darrisaw, a forensic pathologist, told the court. “By feeling the head, it was very soft and by feeling it you could tell there were already broken bones.”

    The autopsy revealed Caliyah had multiple skull fractures, and some bones in her head were held together by only soft tissue, Darrisaw said. The newborn’s injuries were caused by “very, very significant force” from either being crushed or from multiple impacts, she said. The cause of death was blunt force trauma to the head and the manner was homicide, according to Darrisaw.

    Newton County parents guilty in 2-week-old’s death

    Jurors on Tuesday afternoon found Newton County parents Christopher McNabb and Cortney Bell guilty in the death of their 2-week-old baby. McNabb was sentenced to life in prison without parole, Bell to 30 years with 15 to serve.

    The trial, which included harrowing testimony about the conditions in which the baby lived and her horrific death, ended with tears and defiance.

    “I’m innocent. I didn’t do it,” McNabb told Judge John Ott. “If you ever find out who did it, they deserve to be under the jail.”

    Jurors took about an hour to convict them both on all charges.
