Authorities in North Texas say a 13-year-old accused of hitting a 5-year-old boy in the head multiple times faces a capital murder charge.

Fort Worth police say the teen was arrested Thursday in the death of Sida Osman. The teen's name is being withheld because he's a juvenile.

His case is in the juvenile court system. It's unclear if prosecutors will seek to have him tried as an adult.

Police say the youngster's body was discovered Wednesday afternoon, a day after he was reported missing by his family.

Sida's body was found in the backyard of a vacant house about a block from the apartments where he lived.

Fort Worth police say the two had gone to the yard and the teen was irritated with Sida.
