FOND DU LAC, Wis. (AP) - Authorities say a 29-year-old man wanted in the death of a 14-month-old boy in Wisconsin has been arrested in Texas.

Fond du Lac (FAHN’-duh-lak) police say Daniel Antwon Griffin was arrested Tuesday at a motel in the Dallas area. Authorities say Griffin is wanted on a felony warrant for first-degree reckless homicide and two counts of child abuse causing great bodily harm in the boy’s death and abuse of his twin brother.

Griffin is accused of stepping on the boy and killing him in Fond du Lac in July as the boy’s mother watched. A criminal complaint says she has been accused of negligence in her son’s death.

Griffin is being held in jail in Dallas and is awaiting extradition to Wisconsin.
