MUNCIE, Indiana — A 22-year-old Indianapolis man has been arrested on six preliminary felony charges in the death of his 5-month-old son in Muncie in February.

The Star Press reports (http://tspne.ws/1IVAbZp) Cory Wallace was arrested Friday night after giving police "multiple versions" of what happened when his son Jensen died. The baby was found dead in the family's burning home on Feb. 10. A forensics pathologist determined Jensen had died before the fire of "blunt force trauma to the head."

Wallace has been preliminarily charged with neglect of a dependent resulting in death, aggravated battery, battery on a child under age 14, arson, attempted abuse of a corpse and obstruction of justice. He was being held in the Delaware County jail on $150,000 bond.

It was not known if Wallace has an attorney.
