An Arizona man was indicted this week for murder in the death of his girlfriend’s 1-year-old son earlier this month and promptly released on bond.

The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office said its deputies were dispatched to a Fort Mohave home on January 7 and arrived to find Nikko Demitri McLachlan — the mother’s boyfriend — and a neighbor administering CPR to a young boy. The neighbor had responded to the home upon hearing screaming.

Deputies assisted with CPR until fire department medical personnel arrived and took the child to Valley View Medical Center. The toddler was later flown to UMC Children’s Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, where he died three days later.

The Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office conducted an autopsy and determined the child died from an extensive brain injury that was not accidental.

McLachlan, 27, was arrested on January 13 and indicted a week later. He is charged with first degree murder/domestic violence, second degree murder/domestic violence, and child abuse/domestic violence. McLachlan was released on a $50,000 the day after his January 13 arrest, the Mohave Valley Daily News reported. He’s due in court on January 24 for a preliminary hearing.
