Ohio dad charged in fatal beating of 2-year-old

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — A 21-year-old northwest Ohio man is jailed on a $1 million bond after police say his 2-year-old son was beaten to death.

Samuel Oliver appeared in court today in Toledo, where he was arraigned on an aggravated-murder charge.

A police report says Oliver caused the death of Dalano Oliver by “beating him about the face, head and body.” He was unresponsive when emergency workers arrived at the apartment after a 911 call Monday.

The Lucas County coroner ruled the child’s death a homicide.

Oliver’s family would not comment after the hearing.
