Police and the Essex County prosecutor’s office say 27-year-old Wakir Bryant was arrested Friday evening on aggravated manslaughter charges in the death of Mikhy Robinson.

An official familiar with the investigation says Mikhy’s mother was asleep Friday morning and awoke to see her boyfriend holding the bleeding toddler and saying repeatedly: “I’m so sorry.” The official spoke on condition of anonymity because that person was not authorized to release details about the case.

Authorities say the boyfriend drove the boy and his mother to a hospital, where the toddler was pronounced dead.

Officials say Bryant has a lengthy criminal history, including weapons offenses. It was not immediately known whether Bryant had a lawyer. Bail has been set at $1 million, according to a statement issued by police and prosecutors.
