(Scroll down for video) A man was arrested on a charge of murder after allegedly dismembering a boy because he cried too much, according to police in Illinois.

The Chicago Police Department said that they have arrested 41-year-old Kamel Harris, after being accused of giving milk to the 2-year-old boy despite the fact that he was allergic to dairy.

Harris has been charged with first-degree murder, concealment of a homicidal death and dismemberment of a human body. He was booked into jail, and is being held without bail.

According to the police investigation, the mother of 2-year-old Kyrian Knox, left her son in the care of Harris, as she was in the process of moving to another state.

While watching the child, Harris gave him milk to drink despite the fact that he was allergic to dairy. After a few minutes, the boy began to cry from stomach pains as a result of an allergic reaction.

Harris lost his temper and killed the boy. He then dismembered the body and dumped his remains in the Garfield Park lagoon.

The mother of the child, who was identified as Lanisha Knox, said that she entrusted her child with Harris, as he was a family friend.
