Two people were arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of a 3-week-old girl. They were taken into custody around 4 p.m., but no charges had been filed as of late Wednesday.
Liberty police officers and emergency medical personnel responded to a report of an infant who was not breathing about 2:05 p.m. Sunday at the Jefferson Park apartments in the 1200 Block of Missouri Court, police Sgt. Matt Kellogg said.
The baby was taken to Liberty Hospital and later transferred to Children's Mercy Hospital, where she died about 3:50 p.m. Tuesday, Kellogg said.
Police were awaiting medical reports and the determination of a cause of death. The case is being treated as a death investigation, which is common on any unexpected death.
