KISSIMMEE, Fla. -- A 19-year-old man was charged with first-degree murder after allegedly injuring his girlfriend's 2-year-old son and then pouring boiling water on the boy, who later died, Kissimmee police said.

Jonathan Alicea was initially arrested on a charge of attempted felony murder of the child, who was in critical condition at Arnold Palmer Hospital in Orlando. The charge was upgraded after the boy died on Monday, police said.

According to Kissimmee police, officers were called to the Osceola Regional Medical Center at about 7:15 p.m. Sunday in reference to a possible child abuse case.

Detectives talked with Alicea, who was the caretaker of the child when he was injured, and Alicea said he became angry with the boy because he would not eat and he soiled his pants, according to Kissimmee police.

Alicea told police he pushed the child's head, causing him to lose consciousness. He said he tried CPR, but when it didn't work, he poured boiling water on the child in an attempt to revive him.
