SHARPTOWN, Md. (AP) - Authorities say a Wicomico County man is facing charges in the death of a 16-month-old girl.

Authorities responded to a home on Little Water Street in Sharptown on Tuesday for a report of an unresponsive child.

The girl was taken to Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury before being taken to Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C., where she died Friday.

Investigators say Darren Lee Adkins, who lived with the child’s mother, was arrested Wednesday.

Adkins was ordered held without bond after initially being charged with first- and second-degree child abuse and first- and second-degree assault.

A preliminary court hearing is scheduled for Dec. 28.
