The state is pushing to keep a New Mexico man accused of beating a 2-year-old locked up until trial. 

Kristopher Lloyd told Ruidoso police his girlfriend’s son fell from a kitchen counter, but investigators believe Lloyd actually hit the child several times causing such severe bleeding and swelling that part of the child’s skull had to be removed.

Lloyd turned himself in to police on Friday. 

Court records show no criminal history for Lloyd in New Mexico.
