WASHINGTON (AP) - Authorities say a District of Columbia man has been charged with murder in the death of a 20-month-old boy.

Police say 28-year-old Jonathan Fullard of Southeast was arrested Monday and charged with first-degree murder in the death of Keyontae Osbia Moore.

Authorities say police were called on March 5 to United Medical Center, where the child was in extremely critical condition. Police say the toddler had been brought to the hospital from the 3000 block of 30th Street in Southeast. The child was taken to Children's National Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say an autopsy determined the cause of death was blunt-impact trauma.

No additional details about the incident have been released.
