Man Accused Of Killing Girlfriend’s 1-Year-Old Son After Child Urinated During Diaper Change

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a 24-year-old man who is accused of killing his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son at a Tampa motel.

Austin Hamilton is charged with first-degree murder of Sincere Williams, who just turned 1. His mother told police she left the boy and his 6-year-old sibling with Hamilton on Saturday while she went to work.

Hamilton called 911 after the child began having trouble breathing. The boy was pronounced dead at a hospital.

Police say Hamilton told them the boy urinated as he was changing his diaper. Hamilton said he “lost control” and hit the boy with a leather belt. He says he tried to pick the boy up, but he fell and hit his head. The other child wasn’t injured.

Hamilton is being held without bail.
