Baltimore police: Father charged in death of infant daughter

BALTIMORE (AP) — A 21-year-old man has been charged in the death of his infant daughter.

Baltimore police announced Thursday that Anthony Ford was charged with second-degree murder, child abuse resulting in death, first- and second-degree child abuse and first- and second-degree assault in the death of his daughter, Brailynn.

Police say Brailynn was taken to a hospital Oct. 4 with signs of trauma to her body and she died on Sunday. Her death was ruled a homicide.

It’s not clear whether Ford has an attorney since the case doesn’t yet appear in online court records.
