FORT MILL, S.C. - A Fort Mill man appeared in court Thursday after he was accused of trying to suffocate his 1-year-old child.
Grayson Seawell, 21, has been charged with two counts of unlawful conduct toward a child and one count of attempted murder following an investigation by the Criminal Investigations Division of the Fort Mill Police Department.
According to a police statement, officers responded to a call for physical assault of a child Tuesday at Seawell’s home on Murphy Court.
Upon arrival, officers said they learned from the mother of Seawell’s one-year-old that he had tried to suffocate their child and stopped after she intervened.
Seawell had left the home before officers showed up, but he was found nearby a short time later and arrested, police said.
After further investigation, authorities discovered that Seawell was suspected of abusing both of his one-year-old children previously.
Seawell is now being held in the York County Detention Center. He’s been denied bond on all charges.
If Seawell is convicted, he could face up to 30 years on the attempted murder charge, and up to 10 years each on the other charges against him.
