A Pennsylvania man was arrested Friday and charged with the death of 2-year-old Brielle Swinton.

Kyrell Morgan, 19, faces charges of criminal homicide and endangering the welfare of children in the toddler’s death early Thursday morning.

The criminal complaint against Morgan says he squeezed the girl around the mid-section the day before, which caused a laceration on her liver and led to her death, according to KDKA.

First responders arrived at the Stowe Township home at about 3:45 a.m., Allegheny County Police said, and found the child not breathing. She was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.

Morgan was arrested after the medical examiner’s office ruled the death a homicide. Police did not say if or how he was related to the girl.
