WICKLIFFE, Ohio (AP) - Police say an 11-year-old girl is being held in a northeast Ohio juvenile detention center after a 2-month-old girl died under suspicious circumstances.

A news release from police in the Cleveland suburb of Wickliffe says emergency personnel were called to an apartment complex around 3:45 a.m. Friday for a baby in distress. Police say the infant was taken to a nearby hospital and then flown to a pediatric care center in Cleveland where she died of extensive internal injuries.

The release says the baby’s death is considered suspicious. Lt. Pat Hengst said Friday it’s believed the 11-year-old played some role in the infant’s death but would not elaborate.

He would not say whether the 11-year-old and infant were related.
