A Lafayette man who is already charged with capital murder for allegedly killing his girlfriend's child is now also charged with aggravated rape.

21-year-old Landon Broussard has been indicted for the aggravated rape of the same 3-year-old boy he is accused of beating death in November of last year. Broussard was arrested along with the child's mother after detectives say the toddler died of blunt force trauma to several areas of its body.

Doctors at Women's and Children's Hospital who examined the body reportedly said both of the child's eyes were swollen shut and it was covered in bruises.
