HILLSBORO, Ore. (AP) - A 24-year-old Oregon man has pleaded guilty to manslaughter and assault in the August 2012 death of his girlfriend’s 4-year-old son.

The Oregonian reports (https://is.gd/Ba72Hb ) that Brian Canady had been charged with murder in the death of Zachary Dutro-Boggess. The boy collapsed at the suburban Tigard homeless shelter where his family was living. Canady admitted to detectives that he kicked the child in the stomach two days earlier.

Prosecutors say the boy died of blunt force trauma to his abdomen and a delay in medical treatment.

Canady was not sentenced at Tuesday’s hearing in Washington County Circuit Court in Hillsboro.

The boy’s mother is also charged with murder and assault. Her case is pending.
