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 (https://cjky.it/1lmeqqM ) reports officers arrested 25-year-old Lajuan D. Hayes on Wednesday.
