CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) - Police say a northeast Ohio man has been arrested and charged with murder in the death of his 3-month old daughter.

Cuyahoga Falls police say 3-month-old Alivia Scott was taken to the hospital on Feb. 5 after someone reported a baby was unconscious. Police say an investigation showed the infant was assaulted. She died from her injuries Monday at Akron Children’s Hospital.

Police say the girl’s father, 29-year-old Matthew Scott, was taking care of the child the day she was injured. He was arrested Monday and charged with murder, felonious assault and child endangering.

Court records show no attorney for Scott. He was scheduled to appear in Stow Municipal Court Tuesday.
