SANFORD, N.C. (AP) - A 3-year-old boy who authorities said was beaten last week has died.

Sanford police said in a news release that the unidentified toddler died from his injuries Monday.

28-year-old Michael Anthony Amatucci had been charged Friday with felony child abuse inflicting serious physical injury, a day after emergency responders found the boy unresponsive inside an apartment. Authorities say the suspect is the mother’s boyfriend and lives with her.

Police say additional charges are pending, following the victim’s death.
