TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Tulsa man has been arrested in the death of a 1-year-old who authorities say showed signs of sexual abuse and physical trauma.

The Tulsa World reports the 30-year-old man and his girlfriend, the baby’s mother, took the child to an emergency room Saturday. She was unresponsive and in cardiac arrest upon arrival.

Police said her injuries included contusions on her face and internal trauma consistent with rape.

According to the report, the couple told police the girl was injured when she slipped and fell on a toy.

The man was brought in for further questioning and arrested. He faces charges of child abuse, sexual abuse of a minor and first-degree murder. The Associated Press is not naming him because he hasn’t officially been charged.

Jail records show he’s due in court Monday.
