NAPLES, Fla. (AP) -- A 25-year-old southwest Florida man faces manslaughter and child abuse charges in the death of his girlfriend's 1-year-old child.
Niklaus Booska was arrested Friday, days after 1-year-old Ivan Rose died at Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital in Hollywood.
Collier County Sheriff's deputies say the baby received head trauma on Jan. 31. Booska was watching the child for his girlfriend while she was at work. No further details about the child's injuries were immediately available.
