Edgar Algarin Beats 3-Year-Old Girl to Death for Not Eating Her Dinner

Algarin had apparently never encountered this widespread phenomenon that's been going on since, say, the beginning of time. So he thought assault would be the best way to jumpstart an interest in healthy nutrition.
He punched Enidaliz in the back. Very hard. When she began crying, he sent her to bed.
The girl was in pain for the next four days, but Algarin refused to take her to the hospital, fearing he'd get pinched.
Then, on Saturday, he was playing video games in the wee hours of the morning when he heard her screaming, crying and wheezing. He claims he blacked out. When he woke, the girl was lifeless in his arms.
She would die at the hospital.
An autopsy revealed she was suffering from massive injuries, including a ruptured intestine and pancreas, torn bowel, broken rib and internal bleeding, which leads us to believe he brutalized her a lot more than he's letting on.
He's been charged with both murder and manslaughter.
