The 4-year-old was found unconscious in a mobile home at the Westover Trailer Park in Palatka around 4 a.m. Monday, WESH reported. Twelve other people, including six adults, were in the home when the boy was found, but it’s unclear if anyone was there when the alleged choking happened.
The boy was rushed to a hospital in critical condition, and pronounced dead around 12:40 p.m. Tuesday.
The 11-year-old, who hasn’t been identified because he is a minor, was arrested in front of his mother and charged with aggravated battery, police said. He lived in the same home as the victim, according to News4Jax but it’s unclear what their relationship was and what led up to the alleged assault. It's also unknown if his charges will change following the boy's death.
