CANTON, OH (WOIO) - Canton Police say Anthony Benjamin Grove killed his two-month-old son during an argument with the child's mother. 

Grove, 34, appeared in court Thursday morning on charges of murder, child endangering and domestic violence.

According to the police incident report, the mother, Patricia Fiebig, claims that some time before 2 a.m. Tuesday an argument broke out between her and Grove because Grove was smoking while she was feeding the baby. The report shows that Grove grabbed a ceramic mug full of hot coffee and threw it. The mug hit two-month-old Zeeland in the head.

Zeeland was taken to Akron Children's Hospital and died nine hours later. 

Grove is being held in the Stark County Jail on a $2 million bond.
