A man and his girlfriend have been charged in the death of a three year old boy.
On Friday, March 14, 2014, a call was placed to the Dodge/Wilcox 911 center about a child that was injured. When emergency medical personnel arrived at a mobile home at 27 Arthur Cooper Road just outside Eastman, they found that three year old Zackory Dean Smith had severe injuries and called for the Dodge County Sheriff’s Department. After sheriff’s deputies arrived, they called for assistance from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI).
Zackory was taken to Dodge County Hospital and efforts to revive the child were made, but to no avail. Dodge County Coroner Joe Smith pronounced the child dead at the hospital. The child was sent to the Georgia Crime Lab to determine the cause of death.
