SEATTLE — Authorities have arrested a Renton man in connection with the death of a 2-year-old boy in SeaTac.

The King County Sheriff’s Office says the boy couldn’t be resuscitated and was pronounced dead.

The sheriff’s office says the boy’s mother was at work at the time and had left her son in her boyfriend’s care.

The 24-year-old man was arrested Wednesday night for investigation of murder and booked into jail.
