November 20, 2014

KENOSHA Kenosha police have arrested a man in connection with the slaying of his 11-month-old daughter.

Police said Wednesday the 34-year-old Kenosha man was arrested Tuesday and faces charges including homicide, substantial battery and arson.

Police found the girl Tuesday evening when they responded to a call in which a woman was screaming that someone had killed her baby. Police say the girl was severely bruised and her face was disfigured.

Firefighters responded after officers saw the suspect setting fire to curtains in his apartment.

The 27-year-old woman and the baby were taken to an area hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead. The woman was treated for a swollen face and cuts to her hand and remained hospitalized Wednesday.

A medical examiner says the girl died from multiple blunt force injuries in a homicide.
