WASHINGTON (AP) — Police in Washington, D.C., say a man has been charged with murder in the death of his girlfriend’s child.

News outlets report 28-year-old Brian Jamal Wooden was arrested and charged with first-degree murder on Sunday. Metropolitan police say officers had found 1-year-old Carter Sanders unconscious on Wednesday.

Police spokeswoman Karimah Bilal tells The Washington Post that Wooden is the boyfriend of Carter’s mother. Police say he died at a hospital of “multiple blunt-force injuries.”

It is unclear if Wooden has a lawyer.
