Officials with the Memphis Police Department said Thursday the city's 64th murder victim of the year was a two month old infant, Erica Cathey.

The department would only release limited details, saying only the child's father, Eric Cathey, was arrested last Wednesday night and charged with aggravated child abuse.

Police have not yet charged Cathey with murder, while they await a preliminary report from the medical examiner's office.
