Police say Hapgood stabbed Zaniyah Calloway to death while babysitting her and an 11-year-old child at a home in Bristol on Monday evening. Officers responded to the scene after a 911 call and encountered a person running toward them carrying the wounded girl. The other child wasn’t hurt.

Police officers gave medical attention to the girl, but she later died at a hospital.

Hapgood was charged after he was treated at a hospital for undisclosed injuries.

Hapgood was represented by the state public defender’s office, which declined to comment Tuesday.
