BLUFFTON, Ind. (AP) - The father of a northeastern Indiana toddler who died of blunt force trauma in a case linked to drug use has been arrested on drug-trafficking charges.

Twenty-two-year-old Tyler Collings of Bluffton was arrested Monday night on charges of dealing a controlled substance and dealing synthetic drugs.
