GOLDSBORO, N.C. (AP) -- The father of a 15-month-old boy is facing charges after the toddler's body was found on the side of a Columbus County road.
The Goldsboro News-Argus reports that Seymour Johnson Air Force Base Senior Airman Matthew Theurer is charged by U.S. Air Force investigators with voluntary manslaughter, negligent homicide and murder. He is currently being held in the Sampson County Pre-Confinement Facility.
