Toddler dies from injuries

NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) - A 20 month old Nacogdoches toddler has died after suffering severe injuries that appear to be non-accidental.   Thirty year old mark Wayne Cole of Nacogdoches has been charged with injury to a child, a first degree felony. According to investigators, the child had been left in Cole's care. Savannah Carter died Sunday afternoon. According to the arrest affidavit obtained by KTRE, Cole freely admitted to police that he had somewhat shaken Savannah out of frustration due to her not wanting to stay in her bed, and also that he had caused her head to strike a hard object, possibly a door jam. Cole is being held in the Nacogdoches County Jail on a $100,000.
