A man from Raleigh, North Carolina, has been charged with murder in the death of his 5-year-old son, who had autism. Police warrants said that Amir Devon Hines, 24, beat his son so badly that it caused the child’s brain to hemorrhage.

On Sunday night, authorities responded to a report of a child assault at UNC Hospital in Chapel Hill. The 5-year-old being treated was Karter Holloway.

Amir Devon Hines charges upgraded to murder

Police initially charged Hines with felony child abuse and inflicting serious bodily injury. However, after Karter died on Monday, the police upgraded Hines’ charges to murder on Tuesday.

Hines is in jail on a $500,000 bond.

Karter’s mom Madi Holloway said he had autism and he was beaten for peeing in the bed

In a Facebook post, Karter’s mom, Madi Holloway, said that her son couldn’t defend himself.

“He had autism,” Madi said in her social media post. “I know for a fact he just sat there crying while you beat him for peeing in the bed.” “You are his father.”

Karter’s family has started a GoFundMe to help lay him to rest. The GoFundMe description stated that Karter was “a nonverbal autistic child who was always happy and loving.”

Our hearts and prayers are with his family
