A Kansas man is charged with first-degree murder and child abuse in the death of a young boy.

D'Khari Lyons, 23, of Manhattan was arrested Thursday. He is jailed on $500,000 bond and does not have a listed attorney.

Police in Manhattan responded on Nov. 8 to a call that an infant was not breathing. The child, age two months, was taken to a Manhattan hospital, then flown to a hospital in Kansas City, Missouri, where he died.

The child's name has not been released and authorities have not disclosed if Lyons was related to him.
