Grangeville Man Denies Killing Child In His Care

GRANGEVILLE, Idaho (AP) - A Grangeville man accused of killing a 3-year-old boy in his care says he did nothing to cause the boy's death.

The Lewiston Tribune reports that Todd Carver took the witness stand Wednesday in his murder trial. He said that he and the boy's mother, Angela Johnson, cried when doctors told them that Dominick Tyree Boyd would not survive.

The 22-year-old Carver is charged with first-degree murder in Dominick's March 3 death. Carver was babysitting the boys while Johnson was at work. Prosecutors say an autopsy showed bruises all over the boy's body, hemorrhaging inside his brain and swelling outside the brain cavity into the spinal column.

Carver said the boy fell down the stairs and hit his head against a bed frame.
