WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Police arrested and charged a man with murder in connection to the death of 2-year-old in August.
Daryl Reed, 24, was charged with first-degree murder and is being held in the Forsyth County Detention Center without bond.
On Aug. 12, police responded to a call about an unresponsive child at 2850 Piedmont Circle. The 2-year-old, Corey Plate, was taken to Brenner Children’s Hospital where he later died.
