INVESTIGATORS HAVE ARRESTED A 23-YEAR-OLD MAN, AFTER HIS GIRLFRIEND'S 14-MONTH-OLD DAUGHTER WAS FOUND DEAD IN AN OGDEN APARTMENT.

POLICE RESPONDED TO THE WESTERN COLONY INN MONDAY NIGHT, AFTER RECEIVING REPORTS THE TODDLER WAS UNRESPONSIVE.

FIRST RESPONDERS SAY THE INFANT WAS ALREADY DEAD, WHEN THEY ARRIVED.

A 3-YEAR-OLD, AND A 5-YEAR-OLD -- WHO WERE ALSO IN THE APARTMENT -- WERE REMOVED BY THE STATE.

THEIR MOTHER, KACI RUPERT, HOPES TO BE REUNITED WITH THEM, IN THE NEXT COUPLE OF DAYS. 

 

POLICE SAY HER LIVE-IN BOYFRIEND -- ADAM BARNEY -- CONFESSED TO HITTING THE GIRL SEVERAL TIMES... AND SQUEEZING HER HARD ENOUGH TO SERIOUSLY INJURE HER.
