OCEAN SHORES -- The charge against a man accused of killing his newborn baby daughter at Ocean Shores has been upgraded to first-degree murder.
Patrick Parnel had been charged with second-degree murder.
KXRO radio reported the charge was amended Tuesday and the 21-year-old was rebooked into the Grays Harbor County Jail with bail doubling to $1 million.
Parnel is accused of beating the baby to death April 3 and leaving her body in a wooded area after she was born in a motel.
Parnel's girlfriend, 21-year-old Brittany Taylor, is charged with abandonment of a dependent person.
Court documents say they went to the motel because they didn't want anyone to know Taylor was about to deliver.
