Authorities have charged a Covina man with murder in the death of his 2-year-old son.

Authorities believe 28-year-old Alex Trujillo stabbed the boy following an argument with his girlfriend, the toddler's mother.

Police say officers responding to an emergency call on Tuesday found Trujillo acting erratically at his mother's home, where he was allegedly holding a kitchen knife.

Police say that after Trujillo was seen through a window stabbing himself, officers kicked down the door and found the wounded boy, who died of his injuries at a hospital.

It was not known if Trujillo had been assigned an attorney.
