Charges to be Upgraded after Child Abuse Victim Dies

A three year-old girl has died after police say she was beaten by her mother's live-in boyfriend.
MEMPHIS, TN (localmemphis.com) - A three year-old girl has died after police say she was beaten by her mother's live-in boyfriend.

Memphis police say Tony McKinney admitted when he was arrested two weeks ago that he "spanked the little girl good."

Officers say he was babysitting the child in the couple's southeast Memphis home while his girlfriend was at work.

The toddler died Friday morning at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital.

McKinney is charged with Aggravated Child Abuse, but that charge is expected to be upgraded. He's being held at the Shelby County Jail on a $250,000 bond.
