(WWJ) Wayne County Prosecutors have charged a Detroit man for the death of a baby girl in his care.  

Dwan Dudley, 25, has been charged with first degree murder and child abuse.

Prosecutors say paramedics were called to the home on Robson near Puritan on February 25 to help an infant who was not breathing.  The little one was taken to the hospital by Detroit Police and EMS. She died from her injuries.

Prosecutors said, “it is alleged that the defendant caused the death of the infant.”

The baby’s mother and Dudley knew each other, according to prosecutors. No other details were released on the nature of their relationship.

Dudley is slated to be arraigned in 34th District Court in Romulus on Saturday.
