OGDEN, Utah (AP) - Investigators have arrested a man after his girlfriend’s 14-month-old daughter was found dead at an Ogden motel.

Ogden police say they responded to the Western Colony Motel on Monday evening after reports that the toddler was unresponsive.

First responders determined the girl had died. A 3-year-old and a 5-year-old who were also at the motel were removed by the Division of Child and Family Services.

Police say the mother’s live-in boyfriend confessed to hitting the girl several times and squeezing her hard enough to seriously injure her.

The 23-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of child abuse homicide and two misdemeanor warrants out of Ogden.
