KENOSHA, Wis. (AP) - Kenosha police say a 5-month-old girl was found dead in her crib.

The Kenosha News (https://bit.ly/1OgEjRF ) reports the girl is the fourth infant to die at home in Kenosha in the past two weeks.

Police were called to a home early Wednesday for a report of an infant who was not breathing. Paramedics could not resuscitate the baby, and she was pronounced dead at the scene.

Lt. Bradley Hetlet says the baby had been sleeping in a crib, and a parent checking on the infant found she was not breathing. Hetlet says there were no signs of trauma, and the baby was not reported to be ill.

An autopsy is scheduled Thursday.

The infant is the fourth baby to die of unknown causes in Kenosha in the last two weeks.
