MONROE, Utah — A Monroe man was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of his baby daughter.
David Lewis Anderson, 37, faces a second-degree felony charge of child abuse homicide for the death of Siri Anderson.
According to a news release from the Sevier County Sheriff's Office, deputies and detectives were called to Anderson's home on June 7 after Anderson said he found the girl unresponsive in her crib.
Siri Anderson, who would have turned one year old the next day, was taken to Sevier Valley Hospital but she couldn't be revived.
Investigators with the Sevier County Sheriff's Office reviewed the facts and information gathered from the Utah Medical Examiner's Office, which they believe prove David Anderson is directly responsible for Siri's death.
David Anderson is expected to make his initial appearance in court on August 23. The bond for a child abuse homicide charge is usually $10,000, but a judge increased it to $20,000 in this case, the news release said.
