    NEWTON COUNTY, Ga. - We’re getting new details in the investigation into the death of a 2-week-old girl in Newton County.

    Warrants show police believe he hit baby Caliyah in the head with a blunt object, wrapped her in a t-shirt and blanket, placed her body in a duffel bag in some woods.  


    According to those warrants, it all happened between midnight and 10:30 a.m. Saturday.

    Detectives allege that not only did McNabb kill his child, but also planned her murder and the effort to hide her body.

    McNabb was denied bond on Thursday. 

    Channel 2 Action News spoke to McNabb on Saturday, just 11 hours after authorities believed he killed the infant.
