A man in San Antonio, Texas, accused of beating his 4-month-old son earlier this year, is now charged in an unrelated 2012 murder case.
KSAT reports Bexar County court records claim 30-year-old Terrence Harper was indicted by a grand jury and now faces a capital murder charge.
San Antonio police say evidence was brought forth from the 2012 case to the Bexar County District Attorney's Office.
During the incident in 2012, a boy, also four months old, died, according to KSAT, after he was taken to the hospital with head injuries and bruising.
The death was ruled accidental and charges were not filed.
Harper was arrested in July in an unrelated case and charged with causing serious bodily injury to a child.

Harper was arrested and charged in the beating of his 4-month-old son late Monday night.
An investigation found that Harper's child had sustained fractures to the right side of his skull, suffered a brain hemorrhage and had bruising over his torso, police said.
According to an arrest affidavit, Harper texted his wife, who was out of town working, that their son "was having problems going to the bathroom, having a 'blow out' and being fussy."
Harper then sent his wife a video that showed the boy propped up on the couch, the affidavit said.
"She said the victim looked lifeless," the officer investigating the case said in the affidavit.
The toddler's mom immediately left Austin and took her son to a pediatrician's office, where he vomited and had a seizure, the affidavit said.
During his arrest Harper refused to speak to police.
