Authorities say a man accused in the shaking death of a 10-month-old baby in central Ohio has waived extradition and will be brought back to the state to face charges.

Wayne Martin Walker was arrested by US Marshals after he stepped off a Greyhound bus in Sacramento, Calif., on Dec. 2.

The 44-year-old Walker was charged with causing the death of his girlfriend's infant son in November at her home in Laurelville, south of Columbus.

Walker had previously lived in California. The California Department of Corrections said Walker had been convicted of corporal injury of a spouse.

The Pickaway County sheriff has 10 days to bring Walker back to Ohio to face the murder charge.

Deputies say the child's 24-year-old mother called 911 to report that her infant son was unresponsive. The child suffered injuries consistent with shaken-baby syndrome and died later at a Columbus hospital.
