KILN, Miss. (AP) - Authorities in Hancock County have arrested the father of a toddler who died over the weekend.

Sheriff Ricky Adam tells WLOX TV (https://bit.ly/1RZoTti) 25-year-old Charles Connetti III was arrested late Monday night during a traffic stop. Adam says Connetti is charged with capital murder in the death of Maddox Vieregge.

Investigators said the toddler’s death was suspicious.

Adam said the boy was taken to Hancock County Medical Center for breathing problems and was found to be hemorrhaging on Thursday.

The toddler was airlifted to a New Orleans hospital where he died early Saturday morning from his injuries.

Autopsy results are expected to be released Tuesday.

Online jail records do not list an attorney for Connetti.
