Father held on suspicion of killing 6-month-old girl

A man is in jail after being arrested on suspicion of killing his 6-month-old daughter, authorities said Sunday.

L.A. County sheriff deputies were sent to a home in an unincorporated part of Whittier on Friday to investigate the death of the child, who had been in the care of her father.

Authorities identified the suspect as 20-year-old Eduardo Orozco.


The child had suffered blunt-force injuries and was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead, said sheriff’s Sgt. Al Cano.

An investigation led to Orozco’s arrest Saturday night. He is being held without bail at the Norwalk sheriff’s station.
