PARIS, TN -

New information came out on Friday on the former Paris, Tennessee, police officer charged with murder in the death of his infant son. 

Christopher Page is currently in the Carroll County jail on a $500,000 bond. Page was fired immediately after he was charged.

An arrest warrant says the former officer confessed that he caused the injuries that killed his 3-month-old son. Investigators say on Sept. 2 his son, Gunner Page, was taken to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital with life-threatening injuries. He was pronounced dead five days later as a result of the injuries. The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation says agents found information leading to Page's arrest.

He is charged with first degree murder and one count of aggravated child abuse. Page's next court date has not been scheduled. TBI continues an investigation with help from the Henry County Sheriff's Office.
