LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 34-year-old Las Vegas man faces child abuse charges in the death of his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son.

Las Vegas police said Wednesday that Ramiro Camacho faces charges of child abuse with substantial bodily harm and child neglect in the death of Adrian Garcia.

Camacho was arrested Sunday and Garcia died Monday.

An arrest report claims Camacho was caring for his girlfriend’s six children while she was at work Sunday night when Garcia suffered severe head trauma and second-degree burns.

Camacho initially told police he sent the boy to take a shower and later found him face down in the bath tub.

Camacho told police he poured hot water over the boy to wake him. He then took Garcia to a local hospital.
