His preliminary hearing is set for April 8.
By Eyewitness News (WICHITA, Kan.)
Wichita police have arrested a 22-year-old man in the death of a 10-month-old baby. Paramedics responded to a 911 call Monday night in the 8700 block of W. Nantucket.
Police say Karsyn Young's mother dropped him off at her ex-boyfriend's house on Sunday. Then, late Monday, that man called 911 saying the boy wasn't breathing.
He told dispatchers the child had fallen down the stairs and died. But investigators say the baby suffered from "assaultive-type" injuries and arrested the man.
