Man Charged In Connection With Death Of 1-Year-Old

CAPE CORAL, Fla. (AP) — A Cape Coral man has been charged with aggravated manslaughter of a child in connection with the death of a 1-year-old boy.

Collier County jail records show 25-year-old Niklaus Booska was arrested Friday. He’s also charged with aggravated child abuse and was being held on $1.5 million bond.

A sheriff’s office statement says deputies were called to his home on Jan. 31 when the boy’s mother came home from work and found 1-year-old Ivan unresponsive. Booska had been taking care of Ivan, who was pronounced dead a few days later. Doctors determined he had suffered head trauma that led to his death.

The statement says detectives obtained a warrant for Booska’s arrest on Friday. Jail records do not list an attorney for him.
