That’s what an autopsy concluded in the death of 1-year-old Matteo Hansen.
Hansondied late last month at his mother’s apartment in Wilton whilebeing babysat by David Cook, his mother’s boyfriend.
Cook claimed the boy died from falling down the stairs, but Cook was charged with manslaughter when, state police say, the child’s injuries were found to be consistent with being severely kicked or punched.
The toddler also showed signs of older injuries, including fractured ribs and a fractured skull.
Cook’s initial court appearance was postponed Monday because, police say, he was recovering from an overdose of a medication he took shortly before his arrest on Friday.
