Written by Associated Press on March 7, 2014

PORTLAND – Police say a 2-year-old boy found critically injured earlier this week at a motel has died.  A man arrested in the case remains in jail.

Sgt. Pete Simpson said the child died late Thursday afternoon at a Portland hospital.  An autopsy is scheduled.  The boy was found Tuesday night at the Unicorn Motel.

A man identified as 28-year-old Joshua Howard remains in custody for investigation of attempted aggravated murder, assault and criminal mistreatment.

The Multnomah County district attorney’s office will present the case next week to a grand jury.

Police say Howard called 911 on Tuesday night. Officers found the boy unconscious.

Simpson says the former Astoria man is the boyfriend of the child’s mother.
