THE BRONX - A Bronx man has been arrested in connection with the death of a 3-year-old girl Saturday.

Edgar Algari, 26, is charged with murder and manslaughter in the death of Anita Ortiz.

Anita was found unconscious and unresponsive by police in a 140th Street apartment on Saturday. The medical examiner says that the little girl, pronounced dead at the hospital, was hit in the stomach and choked.

Authorities say Algari lived with Ortiz, but it is not clear what his relationship is to her.
