PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) -- The Woonsocket man accused along with another in the beating death of a toddler was belligerent and rude when he spoke to police in the aftermath of the alleged abuse.

That's according to the testimony of a police detective who interviewed the man.

Woonsocket Detective Tony Wood took the stand today in the bail hearing of Gilbert Delestre and Katherine Bunnell. The couple are charged with murdering three-year-old Thomas Wright.

Detective Wood says Delestre didn't want to give a statement to police the morning of the alleged crime, but eventually did. Wood said Delestre repeated he didn't do anything to the boy. The detective also said Delestre appeared to have been drinking.

Thomas died on October 31st from brain injuries and a skeletal fracture.

The child's baby sitter testified the pair slapped and beat the boy after returning from a night out.

The bail hearing continues tomorrow. The state seeks to have the two remain in prison as evidence is gathered.
