A 6-year-old boy murdered the day after Christmas was beaten and choked before being stabbed in the neck.

Police spell out in court documents filed at the office of District Judge Fred Miller of Tyrone that Jared Klein bled to death from the knife wound.

The information became available hours after the arraignment of Nathan Todd Shaw, 25, of Tyrone, the man police for two weeks have been willing to term only as a person of interest.

Shaw was returned Tuesday from Oklahoma, where he had fled following the murder. Shaw is currently in the Blair County Prison with no bail set.

A preliminary hearing has tentatively been set for Jan. 17.

Shaw is also charged with a brutal attack on Christine Muoio, Jared’s mother.

The attack sent Muoio to the hospital in critical condition. While the full extent of her injuries was not reported, she remained hospitalized for more than a week.
