Authorities tell 8News that 33-year-old David John Marcussen, of 635 Village Parkway, Fredericksburg, has been charged with one count of felony murder, one count of involuntary manslaughter, two counts of cruelty to children and one count of child neglect.

Marcussen turned himself into the Stafford County Sheriff’s Office on Friday.

Police say that on Tuesday, January 6, 2015, a Stafford detective received a call from Child Protective Services stating that they had received information that an 11-month-old baby boy had been brought to an area hospital with burns to his face, torso and neck. After an evaluation, the baby was air-lifted to VCU Medical Center.

Police say their investigation determined that the child was burnt while receiving a bath from his foster-father, Marcussen.

The now 12-month-old baby boy, died on February 1 at the hospital. The child has been identified as Ka’ron Mason. Ka’ron had been with his foster family since July of 2014.

Marcussen was indicted by a Stafford County Special Grand Jury on Friday. He’s being held at the Rappahannock Regional Jail under no bond.
