BANGOR, Maine (AP) – A Maine man charged with manslaughter in the death of a 5-month-old child he was babysitting is now facing a murder charge.

Twenty-five-year-old Samuel Moore of Bangor was indicted Wednesday by a grand jury in Bangor. WABI-TV says he was also indicted for manslaughter, for which he was originally charged.

Police say Moore had been babysitting the victim, Korbyn Antworth, before she died March 5 at Eastern Maine Medical Center.

The cause of death has not been released. But a prosecutor said the baby had numerous injuries that were consistent with shaken baby syndrome.

Moore is being held at the Penobscot County Jail on $100,000 bond. His lawyer didn’t immediately return a message left at his office.
