MOUNT VERNON, N.Y. -- A Bronx man is facing manslaughter charges stemming from the death of his girlfriend's 2-year-old daughter in Mount Vernon, according to Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore.

Carlton Brown, 31, was charged with one count of first-degree manslaughter after calling 911, claiming the child, Kali Mack, fell off the bed on Aug. 31, 2014, the district attorney said.

Mack was taken to Montifiore Mount Vernon Hospital before being transferred to The Children’s Hospital at Montifiore in the Bronx on Sept. 1, 2014. She was pronounced dead on Sept. 3, the district attorney said.
