DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Murder charges have been filed against a Dubuque man after the death of a toddler.

2-year-old Bently Randall was taken to the hospital with severe burns and head trauma.  He was in the care of 34-year-old Nicholas Reed.

Bentley died at the hospital.

As part of the ongoing investigation, medical personnel at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics recently determined Bentley died from blunt force trauma to the head.

The doctors advised Bentley's injuries were consistent with being shaken and slammed.

Reed already faced a charge of child neglect, and is being charged with first degree murder, along with making meth and growing marijuana.

He'll be in court tomorrow.
