LA-area father arrested after death of baby girl

NORWALK, Calif. (AP) - The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department says a 20-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of the murder of his 6-month-old daughter.

Sheriff's officials said in a statement Sunday that the girl had been left in the care of her father Eduardo Orozco in a home in the Whittier area on May 5 when she was taken to a hospital and pronounced dead.

The statement says the child had apparent blunt-force injuries, and homicide detectives began an investigation that led to Orozco's arrest on Saturday night. No further details on the investigation have been released.

Orozco was being held without bail at Norwalk Sheriff's Station. Deputies reached by phone did not know if he had hired an attorney.
