Officers say Malachi was involved in a chase with police Wednesday when he slowed down his car and dropped the infant out the door.

Police tell us the baby's right arm was scratched up, but the boy is ok.

Malachi is charged with murder in the death of the baby's mother, Takeyia Easterling, 20, of Marlboro County.

This poor baby, lost his mom and could have lost his life too!
