PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – A Pierre man has been arrested in the death of a toddler this past weekend.
Police Captain Brian Walz says officers were called to Avera St. Mary’s last Thursday after the two-year old child arrived at the hospital suffering from what Walz calls suspicious injuries.
The toddler was later flown to a Sioux Falls hospital where the child died on Saturday.
Tristin Larson is being held in the Hughes County Jail on a possible charge of first-degree manslaughter. The victim was not identified.
The South Dakota Division of Criminal Investigation is assisting Pierre police with the case.
