NC toddler was killed by mother's boyfriend, police say

ST. PAULS, N.C. (AP) - Authorities say a 26-year-old Laurinburg man has been charged in the death of his girlfriend's toddler son.

St. Pauls police Chief Thomas Hagens said Thursday that autopsy results led to first-degree murder and felony child abuse charges against 26-year-old Robert James Jordan.

Hagens says the Medical Examiner's Office reported 17-month-old Nathaniel Bruce Reed was beaten in his head and chest.

Police say the toddler died Nov. 22, hours after the boy's mother called police to her apartment in St. Pauls.

Jordan remains in the Robeson County jail without bond. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
