BERLIN, N.H. (AP) - A New Hampshire man is being held without bail in the death of his 2½-year-old daughter in the city of Berlin.

Prosecutors say 43-year-old Roger Joseph Dana was arrested Friday and charged with second-degree murder in the death of Madison Dana.

Police say the youngster was taken to the Androscoggin Valley Hospital on Nov. 27 after a 911 call. The girl was later pronounced dead. An autopsy found she died of blunt impact injuries, and the manner of death was ruled a homicide.

Prosecutors say the father assaulted the girl multiple times, causing her death.

Dana was arraigned Monday in Lancaster. His case has been assigned to the public defender’s office.
