A Defiance, Ohio man has been charged in the death of a 5-month-old child.
James L. Cooper, 29, is now facing a felony count of murder, according to the Defiance City Police Department.
On Friday, police officers and a Defiance Fire and Rescue crew were called to a Corwin Street home because of a child not breathing.
The child was taken to a local hospital and later transferred to Toledo Children’s Hospital. The child died there Sunday.
Cooper is scheduled to appear in Defiance Municipal Court Wednesday.
