Ohio dad charged in fatal beating of 2-year-old

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A 21-year-old Ohio northwest Ohio man is set to appear in court on aggravated murder charges after police say his 2-year-old son was beaten to death.

A Toledo police report says 21-year-old Samuel Oliver caused the death of Dalano Oliver by "beating him about the face, head and body." He was unresponsive when emergency workers arrived at the apartment following a 911 call on Monday.

The Lucas County coroner ruled the child's death a homicide.

Oliver was scheduled to be arraigned Thursday. Online court records didn't say if he had an attorney yet.
