A 4-year old from Whittier has died after being injured, allegedly through child abuse.

Friday, Jackson County sheriff's deputies charged Eric Lorenzo Davis with child abuse inflicting serious injury. Officials have not said how the child was injured or released a name.

Law enforcement officers were called to the Qualla motel at about 7 a.m. Friday.
