Ethan died of inflicted blunt trauma, which would have caused an immediate coma and eventually resulted in death.
Frank D. Price, 36, (boyfriend of mother) of Cottage Hills, is charged with first-degree murder. He allegedly battered the boy so hard that it caused the child’s brain to bleed and swell severely.
The alleged beating occurred last Sept. 7. Ethan died in a St. Louis hospital a few days later when he was taken off life support.
