BOISE, Idaho (KMVT-TV) A Boise man charged with fatally injuring his girlfriend's 18–month old daughter is now facing first–degree murder charges.

21–year old Jordan Everhart initially was charged with felony injury to a child.

But the Idaho Statesman reports that charge was upgraded last week.

A medical exam revealed Alaija Corbin had bleeding in her brain and hemorrhages in her eyes consistent with having been shaken. She also had bruises and signs of earlier injuries.

Paramedics took Corbin to the hospital early on October 8th after receiving a report of an unconscious toddler. Alaija died a week later.

Everhart is jailed on a $500,000 bond. His preliminary hearing is set for November 18th.
