Mankato man charged with battering 4-year-old

MANKATO, Minn. — A Mankato man is accused of beating his girlfriend's 4-year-old son and kicking a love seat on top of him.

Felony charges have been filed against 39-year-old Miguel Angel Beltran. The child's mother, Kinzie Keim, says Beltran told her last week that he lost control and threw the boy under a mattress in the living room, then kicked a small couch on top of him and jumped up and down on it. A complaint says Beltran pulled the child out from under the mattress and threw him on another couch.

The Free Press (http://bit.ly/1630NDk ) says Keim told investigators Beltran watches her son and another child while she works during the day. The boy had scrapes and bruises.
