Albany -- Authorities have confirmed Sunday that Shondarius Roney was murdered, and the suspect is already in custody.

18-year-old Vincent Soilberry hasn't been charged but is a suspect in  3-year-old Shondarius Roney's death.

Soilberry has been in custody since Friday in the Dougherty County Jail on a previously issued trespassing warrant.

Police were called out to 2216-A South Jackson street Friday morning where they found the 3-year-old unresponsive. He was pronounced dead 30 minutes later at the hospital.

The initial 9-1-1 call indicated he drowned in a bathtub, but autopsy results show the boy did not drown. According to police reports, bruises were found behind his ear, on his chin, thigh and stomach.

Roney's mother, Shaquita Bell, was not home at the time. Her boyfriend, Vincent Soilberry, was caring for the 3-year-old.
