SEATTLE  — Dandre Glaspy, 24, of Renton, was charged Friday with second-degree murder in the death of a 2-year-old boy in SeaTac last Sunday.

Medics responded to the Willow Lake Apartments in the 3000 block of South 208th Street shortly after 1 p.m. Sunday to a report that a boy wasn’t breathing.

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.

Court documents state that the medical examiner found “extensive bruising, several broken ribs, rectal bruising and tears, a fractured pelvis … lacerations to his liver and damage to the pancreas … It was revealed that he had suffered 6 or more blows to the top of the head. … blood was present in the skull indicating there had been bleeding.”

The victim “also had a number of older injuries that appear to have been healing including multiple rib fractures, fractures to both of his arms/wrist and fracture in his pelvis.”

The King County Prosecutor’s Office said that while Glaspy doesn’t appear to have any other criminal history, it asked that he be held in jail in lieu of $1 million. His arraignment is scheduled for Dec. 21.

Glaspy was arrested Wednesday night.
