Arrest Made in Infant Murder

(Walkerton, IN) - A Walkerton man has been arrested for allegedly murdering a 3-month-old baby in Fulton County last summer.


Back in July, first responders were called to a residence southeast of Rochester on a report of a child not breathing. Following the baby’s death, an autopsy revealed blunt force trauma to the head as the cause. Amphetamine and methamphetamine were also allegedly found in the child’s system.


The boyfriend of the baby’s mother, 32-year-old Darren Corbett of Walkerton, was arrested last weekend and charged with murder, aggravated battery against a minor and neglect. He is being held in the Fulton County Jail without bond.
