STAMFORD, Conn. (AP) - The father of a 6-year-old girl who was found abandoned inside New York’s Port Authority Bus Terminal has been charged with murdering the girl’s mother.

Police found the body of 24-year-old Dionicia Bautista-Cano on Nov. 14 in her Stamford home after New York officials found the little girl.

Thirty-two-year-old Elmer Gomez Ruano was later arrested in New York. He was charged with murder Thursday after being extradited to Connecticut.

Ruano was being held in lieu of $900,000 bond and is due in Superior Court in Stamford on Friday. It was not immediately clear if he had hired an attorney.

The girl is in the custody of the Connecticut Department of Children and Families.
