MERCED, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a 26-year-old Central California father has been arrested on suspicion of murder in connection with the death of his infant son earlier this year.

KFSN reports (https://abc30.tv/1IcfNhT ) Tuesday that a representative from the Merced County Sheriff’s Department says Andrew Sanchez was arrested Monday.

The station says a coroner’s report shows the boy, Maddix Ramsour, died of blunt force trauma on March 5 just outside the city of Gustine, California.

Further details were not immediately available Tuesday.

It was also not immediately clear if Sanchez has hired a private attorney.

A representative from the Merced County Public Defender’s office was not immediately available for comment about whether Sanchez has been assigned an attorney.
