Long View, NC -- State authorities charged a 25-year-old North Carolina man with the murder of a one-year-old in Catawba County.

Police say another child, a 3-year-old girl, was found in the same house with possible burn marks. EMS took her to a local hospital.
Investigators say Lail was watching his girlfriend's children at the time of the incident.
Along with the murder charge, Lail faces two counts of first-degree child abuse and violating his probation.
