Child's Death Ruled Homicide

I snuck out last night to see a movie, and just before 10 PM I saw news trucks setting up in front of the Somerset police department. I don't usually see the local news, so I searched and found this horrible story:

The death of a 4-year-old boy who fell down a flight of stairs has been ruled a homicide following an autopsy, officials said.
Unbelievable. Although I'm perplexed as to why some of the news stories listed this 4-year-old as a toddler. A 2-year-old is a toddler. This boy was a preschooler. In any case, this is obviously only the beginning of the most horrible local story to hit Somerset in a long time.
