HOUSTON (AP) - A 28-year-old man has been arrested after a 3-year-old boy died of injuries that witnesses said occurred when the man was wrestling with the boy and his two siblings.

Kevron Powell was charged with reckless injury to a child and is being held in the Harris County Jail in lieu of a $10,000 bond.

Police say David Price suffered a head injury Friday while Powell was caring for him and his 6-year-old and 8-year-old siblings while their mother was at work. Police say David was taken to a hospital, where he died Saturday morning.

Powell also was caring for his 1-year-old son at the time.
