A 6-year-old boy died Saturday after apparently being beaten and kicked the previous day.

Trevor Wagner died at 5 p.m. at Primary Children's Medical Center, according to a hospital spokesman.

Police say a boyfriend who was living with Wagner's mother beat and kicked him at the mother's residence near 800 East and 200 South Friday. The boyfriend allegedly left the boy unconscious, police say. Wagner did not receive any medical attention for at least an hour until the mother came home, police say.

Wagner was taken to Primary Children's Medical Center Friday, where emergency brain surgery was performed.

Bobby San Juan, 35, remained in the Salt Lake County Jail Monday morning for investigation of child abuse.
