CONCORD, New Hampshire (AP) - Police have charged the father of a Concord three-year-old with reckless second-degree murder nearly a year after the girl died.

The Concord Monitor (https://bit.ly/2lJtxhN ) reports police arrested Jocarl Bureau in Manchester late on Friday in connection with the death of his daughter, Jayleah. Bureau is expected to be arraigned on Monday.

Police found Jayleah unresponsive when responding to an emergency call in March 2016. She was later pronounced dead at a hospital and her death was ruled a homicide after an autopsy found blunt force trauma.

Bureau was arrested in September on several domestic violence and simple assault charges against Jayleah’s mother, who is his former girlfriend. Police said they did not know who is representing Bureau in the court case.
