A Hartford man accused of punching a baby so hard that she later died will appear in court on Thursday.
David Brown Barrett, 19, admitted to punching 13-month-old Tyasia Allen in the stomach when she wouldn't stop crying.
He is currently charged with first-degree assault and risk of injury to a minor, but those charges are expected to be upgraded.
