According to AL.com, officers responded to a medical call just before midnight on February 9 regarding an unresponsive child at a home on the 2200 block of Victoria Drive S.W. in Decatur. Investigators said the 8-month-old girl was found with severe bruising over most of her body.
Elliott is being held at the Morgan County Jail without bond and faces charges of capital murder, sexual torture and several drug charges, public records show.
The young girl’s mother told officers that “Cameron Almen Elliott took (the child) on a car ride and when he returned approximately 10 minutes later (she) was gasping for air and in her current state,” according to AL.com, citing an affidavit by Detective Timothy Pace.
The affidavit shared with AL.com said responding officers found the infant with “a bite mark on her arm,” bruises, welts and abrasions on her neck and face, shoulders and legs and was “gasping for air and unresponsive.” The baby was rushed to Decatur Morgan Hospital.
The 8-month-old was then moved to the hospital in Birmingham, AL.com reported.
Authorities have not said what the relationship was between Elliott and the child.

Investigators said that Elliott has been charged three times in the past for domestic violence misdemeanors involving an ex-girlfriend, a separate woman than the 8-month-old’s mother in this case. These charges are unrelated to the latest incident, authorities said, according to AL.com.
In one incident in September 2019, Decatur Police said Elliott went to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment and attacked her when she attempted to contact the police, according to an affidavit cited by AL.com. He punched her in the mouth, it stated, and “Once (the woman) was on the ground, Elliott started stomping her head and kicked her several times, once in the stomach.”
Elliott and the unidentified victim have a child together and she was also five months pregnant with his child at the time of the alleged assault, the affidavit stated. Another reported incident earlier in 2019 involved the same ex-girlfriend and both cases are still pending.
