Ally held on $1 million bond for 18-month-old murder

Posted: Updated:

Bond was set at $1 million for a Sioux Falls man accused of beating an 18-month-old toddler to death.

Manegabe Ally was in court Friday afternoon.  He was arrested Thursday at his home at 401 South Sycamore on charges of 1st Degree Murder, 2nd Degree Murder, and 1st Degree Manslaughter.

On Monday, police and fire crews were called to 401 South Sycamore Avenue for a medical emergency. When they arrived they found a toddler not breathing and without a pulse.

Emergency crews were able to regain the toddler's heartbeat through rescue efforts and the child was taken to Avera McKennan Hospital. The 18-month-old died later Christmas Day.

Sioux Falls Police say an autopsy confirms blunt force trauma as the cause of death.

Police said another child and an adult were present at the time of the incident. The adult was the person who alerted authorities to the medical emergency.

Ally will be back in court next month for a preliminary hearing.
