Man accused of throwing boy against wall charged with murder

RAVENNA, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio man who authorities say threw a 1-year-old boy against a wall, killing him, has been charged with murder.

Court records show 26-year-old Nicholas Catazaro, of Windham, in northeast Ohio's Portage County, was charged with murder Tuesday. A judge in Portage County Municipal Court in Ravenna set bond at $1 million for Catazaro.

The Kent-Ravenna Record-Courier reports emergency crews were called early Friday to a home in Nelson Township for a child not breathing. The toddler was pronounced dead at a hospital.

The Cuyahoga (ky-uh-HOH'-guh) County Medical Examiner's Office determined the boy's skull was fractured. Catazaro was arrested Sunday.

Court records don't indicate an attorney for Catazaro.
