Police took Aaron Joseph Trout, of Glennie, into custody on July 22 and charged him with one count of felony murder after he allegedly dumped the toddler’s battered body at a hospital in Alpena and fled, The Alepana News reported.

According to the outlet, Trout is suspected of killing the girl, who is not his daughter, and then dropping the child and her mother off at the hospital.

Investigators with the Alpena Police Department and Michigan State Police identified Trout as a suspect in the case based on where the baby lived in Alcona County, authorities said.

Autopsy results are pending, but Alcona County Prosecutor Tom Weichel reportedly said it appears the victim may have sustained fatal injuries days before Trout transported her to the hospital.

Police have not disclosed how the child’s mother and Trout are connected.
