DALLAS (1080 KRLD) - A Dallas man is on trial for capital murder in the death of a child.

Darwin Delgado died from internal injuries in July of 2017, the day after his mother told police, boyfriend Brandon Gordy, had choked her. 

Police found the boy unresponsive in an apartment on Park Lane, not far from Abrams.

Police say Gordy told them the 4-year old had been standing in a tub and slipped. But the Medical Examiner found injuries that didn't support that claims such as bruises to the scalp, a broken collarbone and a torn liver, which was the fatal injury.

It was later revealed that Child Protective Services had an open file on Gordy for the abuse of another child.

If convicted Gordy will get life without parole.
