HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND- A 9-year-old boy died after he was handcuffed and beaten for eating a piece of birthday cake without permission and his mom's boyfriend is under arrest.

Jack Garcia died at a hospital after police say he was handcuffed as punishment for stealing birthday cake. The boyfriend, Robert Wilson, is accused of hitting the boy in the stomach after the handcuffs were removed.

It's not clear whose birthday it was since the boy's was three-days earlier. Wilson is charged with first-degree assault and child abuse and charges could be upgraded.
