A Forest Hill man was being held without bail for allegedly killing his infant neice while she was in his care.

Colin Cristopher Wolf, 19, of the 2000 block of Bay Meadows Court in Forest Hill, was charged with first- and second-degree attempted murder, first- and second-degree assault and first-degree child abuse, according to a news release from the Harford County Sheriff's Office. Because the baby died, Wolf's charges are expected to be amended to murder, according to police.

The charges stem from a Thursday night incident at the man's home.

Rebecca Wolf, 52, told police she left her 2-month-old granddaughter in the custody of Colin Wolf while she went to visit family, according to police.

Rebecca Wolf said the baby was asleep in her bassinet around 9:45 p.m. when she left. When Rebecca Wolf returned home around 10:50 p.m., she discovered her granddaughter had suffered serious injuries, the news release states.

The baby was taken by ambulance to Upper Chesapeake Medical Center in Bel Air then transferred to Johns Hopkins Hospital where she she was initially listed in critical condition. The infant later died.

When the grandmother returned home, the younger Wolf immediately left. Police found him at a home in the 1800 block of Trudeau Court in Forest Hill.

Detectives believe Colin Wolf hit the infant in the face, the release states.

He was ordered Friday held without bail at the Harford County Detention Center pending trial.
