According to the station, on Sept. 25, 2018, police and paramedics responded to the Denver home Affourtit shared with his girlfriend and the little boy.

The child, who was unresponsive and not breathing, appeared to be abused and died from his injuries.


An autopsy showed the victim's cause of death was blunt-force trauma, and Affourtit was arrested.

He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 6.
