Local Child Killed By Drill Bit; Warrant Issued For Stepfather

A 9-year old child has died from injuries, from a drill bit-- and a warrant has been issued for his stepfather.

Officers say last Monday, Fredrico Garcia tossed a drill to his stepson, 9 year old Ruben Mata.

The boy caught the drill, but the drill bit pierced his chest.

He was taken to the hospital, where he died Sunday.

Fredrico Garcia is wanted on charges of aggravated assault, but since the death of the boy, police say those charges are under review.
