Man charged with murder after toddler urinated on him

A CHICAGO man has been charged with murder, after allegedly beating an 18-month-old boy to death for urinating on him.

The Chicago Tribune reports that Martin Alvarado Jr has been charged with first-degree murder after police found his girlfriend's son, Edwin Eli O'Reilly, severely beaten and unresponsive at his home.

Edwin was rushed to hospital, where he later passed away.

According to investigators the 23-year-old became enraged after the toddler urinated on him as he changed his nappy. He then repeatedly hit the infant.

Police and an ambulance crew attended the scene after they were alerted that Edwin was unresponsive.

An autopsy concluded that Edwin died due to multiple blunt force injuries, and ruled that his death was a homicide.

It is alleged that Alvarado has made incriminating statements and gave a confession to the crime on camera.

He will face a bond court on Monday.
