BATON ROUGE, La. (KNOE 8 News/AP) - Baton Rouge police have arrested the father of an 11-month-old girl after an autopsy revealed the girl was abused and fatally struck in the head.

Cpl. L'Jean Mckneely Jr. says officers Thursday booked 26-year-old Larry Leflore on charges of first-degree murder and simple battery in the death of his daughter, Aaliyah Heard. He's being held in the East Baton Rouge Parish Prison. No bond has been set.

The baby died Saturday from injuries sustained from abuse.

Earlier this week, the child's mother - 28-year-old Ashley Heard - was booked on a charge of second-degree cruelty to a juvenile.

It was not immediately known if either suspect had an attorney.
