A Pennsylvania man who got into a fight with his girlfriend over groceries ended up killing her two-year-old son.

24-year-old Zachary Tricoch, according to the woman, punched the toddler in the chest so hard that he flew into the wall.

The boy, since identified by family as Jamil Baskerville Jr, got back up, and the suspect is said to have punched him again in the chest, again knocking him into a wall…but this time the little boy was knocked unconscious.

His terrified and shocked mother then called 911. It was around 11:30 p.m. on Saturday.

She told the operator that her son vomited, then become unresponsive.

The two-year-old was then taken to Cooper University Hospital where he was pronounced dead at just after midnight.

An exam revealed that little Jamil’s liver had been crushed and he’d bled to death internally.

The official cause of death has been ruled as blunt force trauma, and the manner as homicide.

Tricoche was arraigned in Camden County Superior Court Tuesday on charges of murder.

His bail was set at $1 million cash.
