WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A man has been charged in the death of his 1-year-old daughter in Wichita.
The Wichita Eagle reports 29-year-old Michael C. Williams was charged Monday with one count of first-degree murder and one count of abuse of a child.
According to Wichita police, Williams called 911 last Wednesday to report that his daughter was not breathing. Authorities say the child was found with scratches, bruises and trauma to her face.
Police say the victim’s mother said the child had no injuries when she left her with Williams to go to work at around 2 p.m.
Williams is being held on $250,000 bond and his preliminary hearing has been scheduled for Sept. 29. It was not immediately clear if Williams has an attorney.
