COLUMBIA, MO - A Missouri mom and her boyfriend are in jail, charged in the death of a baby girl. Police say a Columbia Missouri home was the scene of an infant murder Friday morning.
The mother of the 8-month-old called saying the girl wasn't breathing. Finely Steele was taken to a hospital where she died.
Sgt. Joe Bernhard, Columbia Police Dept.: "And yesterday, in the follow-up investigation, it was found that the infant died from trauma - physical trauma. It wasn't natural causes. We don't want to get into any details on injuries or anything because that could hurt the investigation."
By the end of the day Friday, police arrested 31-year-old Cody Baker.
"Is it known if the man that was arrested is the father of the child?"
Sgt. Joe Bernhard, Columbia Police Dept.: "I believe he is the boyfriend of the mother."
Hours later, the mother, Anna Steele, was also arrested.
