NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Police are looking for the father of a 2-year-old Louisiana boy who died in May.
News outlets reported that New Orleans police have obtained warrants charging 28-year-old Jilder Miranda with second-degree murder and second-degree cruelty to a child.
Police say the 2-year-old was found dead by his mother on May 20. The death was originally listed as "unclassified."
Police said Tuesday investigators have determined the boy suffered several injuries the night before he was found. Detectives think Miranda caused the child's injuries.
