DALLAS (AP) Dallas authorities have charged a 35-year-old man with capital murder in the death of a 3-year-old boy who was wounded with a knife.
Police Sgt. Warren Mitchell said in a statement Sunday that officers responded to a call at about 6:30 p.m. Saturday to find Brandon Edwards hanging out of a second-floor window.
Mitchell says Edwards, 35, jumped but officers apprehended him.
Officers then found 3-year-old Bryson Edwards in the apartment.
He died at an area hospital.
Brandon Edwards' wife, who was not named, had fled the apartment with their 7-year-old daughter to call police.
Jail records show Edwards is charged with capital murder of a person younger than 10 and aggravated assault.
His bond was set at $1.75 million bond.
Records did not list an attorney for him.
