A man was charged Thursday with murder after police said he tossed his 9-month-old son from a car, slammed the baby onto the vehicle's hood and then threw him into a canal.

Charles Edward Tyson, 20, and the child's 17-year-old mother, Shameka Mosley, were driving with the baby early Thursday when Tyson accused her of cheating on him.

Authorities said she stopped the car, and Tyson tossed the child out of the window.

Tyson was jailed for a court appearance Friday. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

Mosley had a restraining order against Tyson that was issued in December after a domestic violence incident, authorities said.
