When Trujillo got back to his apartment and found his baby dead, he cradled the child in his arms and cried. His live in grandmother, awoken by his sobbing, called 911.

Jefferson County authorities have charged the 23-year-old of Golden, a suburb outside of Denver, with first-degree murder in the death of his baby, who was not named.

He is being held without bond. An autopsy on the baby is pending, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff's Office.
