TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - A man accused in the death of a 2-year-old boy in Topeka has been booked into the Shawnee County jail.

The Topeka-Capital Journal (https://bit.ly/1TtMXUR ) reports that the 31-year-old man was arrested Feb. 8 in Missouri on an outstanding first-degree murder warrant, and was booked in to the Shawnee County jail on Wednesday.

Authorities say 2-year-old Eli Clemens died on March 11, 2006, at an apartment complex. His death was ruled a homicide four months later. Topeka police have not said how the boy died.

The suspect is being held on $500,000 bond.
