BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) -- A western New York teenager is scheduled to stand trial in the beating death of his girlfriend's toddler son.
Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in Buffalo for the second-degree murder trial of Dylan Schumaker.
Prosecutors say the 16-year-old from Springville, south of Buffalo, beat 23-month-old Austin Smith to death in March while Austin's mother was at work. He's charged as an adult.
Authorities have said that Schumaker attacked the boy because he was crying.
An autopsy determined Austin died from blunt force trauma to the head.
