GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) - Green Bay police say a 20-year-old man is charged with the death of his infant daughter.

Queondrai Leondarus (KWEN’-dray lee-on-DAYR’-us) Farris is facing two felony counts - first-degree reckless homicide and reckless child abuse in the death of 4-month-old Aesana Farris last summer.

WLUK-TV reports police and paramedics were called to a home June 25 and found the lifeless child. An autopsy showed she had died of “compressional asphyxia.” Farris says he was trying to keep the baby quiet and held her head to his chest. A complaint says he told investigators the death was an accident.

According to Press-Gazette Media, Green Bay police say Farris, who is listed as homeless, was arrested Friday in Milwaukee after he was charged that day in Brown County.
