CROSSVILLE (WATE) - A Cumberland County man is facing aggravated child abuse and felony murder charges in the death of his 11-week-old daughter.

Gracie Hastings died on August 20 at East Tennessee Children's Hospital.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation launched an investigation into Gracie's death, and determined abuse was the cause.

Hastings is due back in court next month.
