KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- A Kansas City man who was charged in January with the beating death of a 2-year-old boy, was released from custody on Tuesday after the medical examiner ruled the boy's death an accident.

In January, Dallas Bogard, 25, told police a bookshelf had fallen on the boy.

The child was taken to a hospital on Friday, Jan. 25, but he died the following Monday.

According to court documents, Bogard, who said he was engaged to the boy's mother, said the boy was in his bedroom with the door shut when Bogard heard a thud. When Bogard checked on the child, he said he found him underneath a bookshelf and that he appeared injured. Bogard said he tried to conduct CPR but the boy remained unresponsive, so he call 911.

Medical staff said the boy suffered from a temporal skull fracture with swelling to the brain and upper spinal area.

Bogard was charged with 1st degree assault.  The court will review the charges against him on June 4. Meanwhile, Bogard was released Tuesday on his own recognizance. The Clay County Prosecutor's office said they will review the facts, medical information and evidence to determine what other charges might be filed.

In January, the boy's mother told detectives her son had climbed the bookshelf in the past and it had fallen over, but that he had never been injured. She told police she had recently seen bruises on her son's legs, neck and back. According to court documents, the bruises on the boy's neck were located under the jaw line. The boy's mother said she thought her son had an iron deficiency and was planning on taking him to a doctor. She stated that she did not believe the bookshelf weighed enough to inflict the injuries her son suffered.

Tuesday afternoon, the public defender who is representing Bogard told FOX 4 that the boy's mother now supports Bogard.

During their investigation, detectives described the bookshelf in court documents as a four-shelf bookshelf that was standing against the wall in the boy's bedroom. The bookshelf did not have any sides or a back and appeared to be "light in weight."

    I have seen a strong sober man driven perfectly mad at the
    moment by two glasses of so-called rum, supplied to him at one of
    these simple shanties. After aiming towards about two
    minutes and a half, he pulled the trigger. On the Early days of
    the Peak Downs Field from “The Peak Downs Telegraph”.
