GREENWOOD, S.C. (AP) - Authorities say the father of a 3-month-old Greenwood County girl has been charged with homicide by child abuse in her death.

Deputies told media outlets that 22-year-old Quentico Dunlap was taken into custody Friday.

The Greenwood County Coroner’s Office says the baby was hurt on March 9 and died four days later in the hospital. Authorities say it appeared she had been violently shaken.

Deputies say doctors found fingerprints on Takari Dunlap’s side and other signs of abuse.

Quentico Dunlap remains in jail. It wasn’t known if he had a lawyer.
