A Fort Bliss soldier now admits he purposely dropped his 11 month-old son, killing him.

It happened back on February 7th at an apartment complex on Zion in Northeast El Paso.

Private First Class Adam Jackson is now charged with capital murder.

The 22 year-old originally told police that he put his son Aiden in his crib, and found him the next morning unconscious.

However, according to a police affidavit released today, Jackson now admits he dropped the baby into his crib from about shoulder height because he wouldn't stop crying.

An autopsy showed Aidan suffered fractured skull and injuries to his throat and ankles.
