A 4-year-old Conneaut girl died Friday morning from head injuries apparently inflicted late Thursday night, authorities said.
A felony child endangering charge has been filed against Joshua Million, 25, 243 E. Main Road (downstairs). He was arraigned late Friday afternoon in Conneaut Municipal Court, and a preliminary hearing will be scheduled, a court spokesperson said.
Meanwhile, Million is being held without bond on a misdemeanor probation revocation order stemming from a traffic offense in 2013, officials said. A condition of the probation Million was granted at the time stipulated he stay out of trouble for five years.
A hearing on the revocation matter will be held at 2:30 p.m. Monday in the local court.
Conneaut Police Chief Charles Burlingham said police were contacted by staff at UH Conneaut Medical Center staff around 11:45 p.m., apparently when the child was brought to the emergency room for treatment. Burlingham identified the child as Melaney Powell. The girl was flown by medical helicopter to Cleveland.
She was pronounced dead Friday morning at University Hospitals Case Medical Center, said Christopher Harris, spokesman for the Cuyahoga County Medical Examiner’s office.
The child is the victim in a “suspected homicide, as reported by the Conneaut Police Department,” according to a statement from Harris.
A preliminary cause or manner of death was not immediately available Friday, Harris said.
Burlingham said the child suffered “suspicious injuries,” which he described as head trauma. “These were fresh injuries,” he said.
Million had been left in charge of the child’s care, Burlingham said.
He is reportedly the boyfriend of the victim’s mother, according to reports.
Investigators have collected evidence at an unidentified location on the city’s east side, Burlingham said. Depending on the results of the analysis, additional charges could be filed against Million, he said.
“The matter remains under investigation,” Burlingham said.This is from Teddy's Law page again. The more I read, the more I see it is the boyfriends of the mothers of these precious children.
When will this end? Why do our children have to suffer abuse? This is becoming an epidemic. We need to stand together and fight against child abuse. This crazy monster was actually smiling in his mug photo. I seen this first hand on a Cleveland news station. Let's end child abuse!
