MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) - Memphis police have charged a man in the April death of a toddler.

According to The Commercial Appeal, two-year-old Sean Lambert died at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital from blunt force trauma that had caused his internal organs to hemorrhage.

Investigators said Michael Foster called 911, saying he had found the boy unresponsive in bed.

He later told officers he was swinging the boy in a circle while playing with him and fell onto him.

Foster is 24.  He is charged with first degree murder and aggravated abuse of a child under six years old.

He is held at the Shelby County Jail which does not have records of inmates' attorneys.

The relationship between the accused and the victim wasn't immediately clear.
