22-year-old man arrested in death of 2-month-old son

CHALMERS, Ind. (AP) — A 22-year-old Indiana man has been arrested in connection with the death of his 2-month-old son.

Indiana State Police say the infant sustained life-threatening injuries June 5 while in the care of his father in White County. The infant was taken to a hospital and was transferred twice before he died Tuesday night at Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

The infant’s father, who is from Chalmers, was arrested Saturday. Police have preliminarily charged him with neglect of a dependent causing serious bodily injury. He was booked into White County Jail and awaits formal charges.

The Marion County Coroner’s office says the infant suffered from blunt force trauma.
