Charges filed against a local mother's boyfriend after her two-year-old dies in his care.
The child died of head trauma last October according to the Jacksonville Sheriff's office.
Jacksonville detectives say 22-year-old Edgardo Delgado was watching the child while the mom was at work. Delgado reportedly went to the mother's job and informed her two-year-old, Noelani Marmolejo, had a fever and needed medicine. Police say the suspect left and called the mom shortly after to tell her the baby had stopped breathing.
The child was taken to the hospital and later died. Detectives say the head injury is similar to that of shaken baby syndrome.
Police say the couple had been dating for a year and that the suspect lived in the home with the mom and child for about 3 months.
JSO determined Delgado had sole care of the child the day of the incident. He's now charged with murder.
