A New Jersey has been arrested for beating his girlfriend’s two-year-old son to death.

24-year-old Zachary Tricoche has been charged with first-degree murder after authorities were called to to a home at about 11:30 p.m. Saturday on a report of an unresponsive child.

Paramedics rushed the toddler to Cooper University Hospital where he succumbed to his injuries just after midnight.

Mr. Tricoche is being held at the Camden County Jail and is scheduled for an arraignment today.
