(Scroll down for video) A 10-year-old boy was arrested on a charge of manslaughter after allegedly killing his 2-year-old cousin because he was jealous of her, according to police in Florida.
Marion County police said that they have arrested 10-year-old Berhaun Blyden, after being accused of the beating death of 2-year-old Journee Blyden.
The father of Journee, 29-year-old Kendall Corey Dustin Blyden, is currently in jail for killing his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son Jayden Green.
According to the police investigation, Journee was staying with her cousins while her mother, Nicole Davis, was out of town for several months, looking for a job.
An autopsy showed that Journee suffered multiple skull fractures and bruises on her body. Berhaun initially claimed that Journee fell out of her crib.
He later changed his story and told investigators he had run into the kitchen with her in his arms and fell. He then placed the girl on the kitchen counter and accidentally knocked her down.
However, doctors said that the injuries were not consistent with the boy’s story.
