KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — A Kansas City man has been charged with killing his girlfriend's 2-month-old son.


Twenty-eight-year-old Arlandez Drew was charged Tuesday with abuse or neglect of a child resulting in death. Charging documents say Jamarion Holland was rushed to a hospital in August.


Drew told police he had been watching Jamarion when the baby appeared to convulse after he was fed formula. Drew said he found a neighbor who performed CPR until an ambulance arrived. The baby died two days later. Drew told police he didn't hurt the child.


A medical examiner determined that the child's death was a homicide, caused by complications of head and neck trauma. A scan of the baby's brain showed bleeding in the brain and extreme swelling.


Bond is set at $75,000. No attorney is listed for him in online court records.
