Rapid City man charged with murder in 2-year-old's death

Posted: Updated:

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - A Rapid City man is charged with killing a 2-year-old girl after her mother left the child with him.

Edward Berges has been charged with second-degree murder and aggravated child abuse in the case.

Rapid City police found the girl Wednesday night after they got a call about a medical emergency.

The child was taken to hospital in Rapid City, and then flown to Sanford Children's Hospital in Sioux Falls. She died Thursday.

Police say the Berges, 23, is the boyfriend of the girl's mother. They say they began investigating the case right away because the girl was badly injured when she was found.
