TULSA, Okla. (AP) – A 13-year-old boy has been charged in the death of his 2-year-old cousin in Tulsa.

According to Assistant District Attorney Sarah McAmis, the boy was charged Tuesday with child abuse murder. Court records say the boy was seen carrying his cousin’s body down a street, knocking on neighbors’ doors asking for help early June 26.

The girl was transported to a hospital where she was pronounced dead. Court records say the toddler had several injuries including a liver laceration, a fractured rib and contusions to her head, face and back.

The Associated Press is not naming the boy because it is not yet clear if he will be tried as a juvenile or as an adult.
