Man accused in 3-year-old’s death faces upgraded charges
The man accused of fatally beating 3-year-old Jaden Jordan is facing upgraded charges.
Salvatore Lucchesse was originally charged with assault and endangering the welfare of a child. Now prosecutors say he's been indicted for murder.
Last week the medical examiner officially ruled Jordan's death a homicide.
Officials say the cause of death was head and neck trauma.
Police say Jordan was beaten into a coma in December and then taken off life support a few days later.
