DENVER (AP) - Police have arrested a 21-year-old man in connection with the death of his 3-month-old daughter.

The Denver Post reports (https://goo.gl/mKvQAc ) Josiah Jones was arrested Thursday and is being held for investigation of child abuse involving the March death of his daughter Naomi Jones.

Investigators say the girl was not breathing when paramedics arrived at a Lakewood home March 3. Jones and his daughter were the only two at the home.

Naomi had numerous serious injuries that detectives say were unexplained or inconsistent with the account that Jones provided. She died at a hospital three days later.

Booking documents do not indicate if Jones has hired an attorney.
