NEW YORK (AP) - A 34-year-old Bronx man has been charged in the death of his 3-year-old step-grandson.

Prosecutors say Fernando Yensi pleaded not guilty Tuesday to manslaughter charges in the death of little Poseidon Quinones. Information on Yensi’s lawyer was not immediately available.

Officers found the boy unconscious inside his South Bronx apartment in November while responding to a 911 call. The medical examiner determined the child suffered “compressive blunt force” trauma.

Prosecutors say Yensi’s wife, the boy’s grandmother, was working on an overnight shift at the time of the incident. They say the boy had been placed into the care of the couple after the city Administration for Children’s Services removed the child from his mother’s home.
