LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - An Angelina County grand jury has indicted a Lufkin man accused in the murder of his girlfriend's three-year-old son.

Kerry Jock Woodard, 27, is charged with capital murder.

According to a previous interview, Lt. Pete Cooper with the Angelina County Sheriff's Office said investigators opened the case after the child, Zikeishun Lane, died at a Houston hospital in Dec. 2010 after suffering multiple injuries, including a lacerated liver, contusion on the lung, hemorrhages in the eyes and spinal cord, subdural hematomas of the brain and more than 100 documented contusions and abrasions on the head, torso, legs and arms.

Woodard was arrested in Dec. 2011, after the sheriff's office received the autopsy.
