BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Jury selection was set to begin Thursday morning in the case of Matthew Kuzdal, who is accused of beating his girlfriend’s 5-year-old son to death.
Kuzdzal first said Eain Brooks fell down the stairs. Investigators now say Kuzdzal told them he became angry after Eain urinated on himself, and threw him into the shower, where he hit his head.
Kuzdal is also charged with sexually assaulting the boy.
His attorney claims the death was a tragic accident.
