DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - The man suspected in the death of an 18-month old Dallas boy has been arraigned. 

A judge has set bond at just over $500,000 for 27-year-old Sedrick Johnson. He was arrested yesterday for the death of 18-month old Cedrick Jackson, the nephew of Johnson's girlfriend.

Johnson is accused of injury to a child, a class 1 felony. But that could change, based on the results of an autopsy. And prosecutors could refile the case as a capital murder charge.

Johnson has prior arrests for resisting arrest, prostitution and abandoning a child
