OLD LYCOMING TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- A man from Lycoming County is charged with killing his girlfriend's child.

Jason Forsyth, 22, from Old Lycoming Township, is charged with murder, assault, and related charges in the death of 19-month-old Ky'mani Moore.

The little boy died in December of 2018 at his home on Misner Road near Williamsport.

Ky'mani's mother Alyssa Carpenter told police that Forsyth was living with them at the time. She said Forsyth was the only person to have made contact with Ky'mani the morning that he was found unresponsive. The toddler died later that day.

The autopsy showed the child suffered from several fractures to both the head and ribs area. The report also stated that the toddler had several marks and bruises from prior instances.

Old Lycoming Township police have charged Forsyth with murder, aggravated assault, and involuntary manslaughter.

Forsyth has been locked up in Lycoming County on unrelated charges since November.
