PARADISE HILL, Sask. — RCMP in Saskatchewan say they have charged a man with murder following the death of a 13-month-old boy.

The child was rushed to hospital in Lloydminster and later airlifted to Saskatoon, but he died on Wednesday.

Allen Charles Davidson, 38, has been charged with second-degree murder and will appear in court today in Lloydminster.

Paradise Hill is located approximately 250 kilometres northwest of Saskatoon.
