A 28-year-old man suspected of killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son has been arrested in Tacoma.
The News Tribune reports the man was booked into the Pierce County Jail Wednesday morning on suspicion of homicide by abuse.
The boy’s mother reportedly brought him to the hospital late Tuesday night because the child was having trouble breathing. He later died. Doctors noticed signs of abuse and called police.
