WILLIMANTIC, Conn.—Police say a Willimantic man has been charged with manslaughter in the death of his girlfriend's 3-year-old daughter.

On Wednesday, the state's attorney's office contacted state police about the death of Willimantic toddler Athena Angeles, who had been taken to the hospital in cardiac arrest.

An autopsy Thursday showed that Athena's death was a homicide caused by blunt abdominal and chest trauma.

Police arrested Fredy Alexander Chingo Riz, the mother's 23-year-old live-in boyfriend, on manslaughter and assault charges. He is being held on $1 million bond ahead of his Friday court appearance.

It was not known Friday if he is represented by a lawyer.
