LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Louisville police say they have charged a man with murder in the death of his girlfriend's child.
Police say the 2-year-old boy was taken to the hospital on Tuesday with multiple blunt force trauma injuries and severe burns. The Courier-Journal reports officers arrested 25-year-old Lajuan D. Hayes on Wednesday.
Police say he was watching the boy while his mother worked and was the only person around the child when the injuries occurred.
It wasn't immediately clear whether Hayes had hired an attorney.
