WAVELAND, Mississippi — A Hancock County grand jury has indicted a man for capital murder in the death of his daughter last August.
According to multiple media reports, 33-year-old Oren Lewis is charged in the 2013 death of 23-month old Maleah "Gracie" Bush.
The indictment was issued in May but made public this past week.
Lewis, a Hancock County native, is a former Hancock County coach who played football for Pearl River Community College and Louisiana Tech.
Authorities say that the girl died after Lewis reportedly told police she had fallen from a bed while she was asleep at a Waveland home. The child, the daughter of Lewis' former girlfriend, died at a New Orleans hospital. An autopsy showed the girl died of a massive traumatic head injury.
