A Texarkana, Texas, man has been arrested for capital murder for the death of a two-year-old.

Little Dalton Slaten arrived at Wadley Hospital with multiple injuries over his entire body. Early this morning, he was air-lifted to Children’s Hospital in Little Rock, where he was pronounced dead.

Investigators say the child had been with a babysitter since about 10 a.m. yesterday morning. At some point between then and 7 p.m., 32-year-old Jimmy Mahone took custody of the child. In the early evening, the babysitter found the child crying — and Mahone was holding him. Initial reports that the child had fallen from a porch proved to be false.

Mahone was booked into the Bi-State Justice Center. The child’s body is being sent to Dallas for an autopsy.
