UPPER MARLBORO, Md. (AP) — Prince George’s County prosecutors say a 13-year-old accused in the beating death of a 2-year-old foster child living with his family has been ordered to a therapeutic group home.

Prosecutors say the boy, who was 12 when the 2-year-old was killed in July, was ordered to serve an indefinite amount of time in the home at a hearing on Tuesday. The boy entered an Alford Plea to involuntary manslaughter.

Police said the boy’s father called 911 to report the 2-year-old was unresponsive. The man performed CPR on the child, but she was pronounced dead at a hospital. The cause of death was blunt force trauma.

Attorney Angela Alsobrooks said a judge ordered that the boy be placed in a home with no one under the age of 18.
