Upon further examination, investigators found blood-soaked baby wipes in a trash bag. In addition, they were located in his room. Afterward, officials issued a warrant and consequential arrest of Luna. According to Metro.Co.UK, Luna stated that Mason would sleep in a car seat next to his bed. He awoke to find her not breathing on the morning of August 24. Luna claimed that he might’ve tighten the straps too hard and prevented her daughter from breathing. In fact, he used to tie her straps so hard, as if she were riding in a car. Currently, Luna is awaiting trial for capital murder, reports Khou. He is in a mental facility without bond. According to WBRC, he is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday. Thus, Luna can face the death sentence, if convicted.
