PASO ROBLES, Calif. (AP) — Paso Robles police say a father has been charged with murder in the death of a 2-year-old girl who had visible injuries to her head and body when officials found her.

The San Luis Obispo Tribune reports Wednesday that 29-year-old Herbert Brown III was arrested after authorities responded to a report the child wasn't breathing early Monday morning.

The child was treated at a local hospital before being transferred to a San Francisco Bay Area hospital for treatment. She died late Tuesday night.

Brown has been charged with murder and assault resulting in the death of a child. He's being held on $130,000 bail.

An autopsy has not yet been conducted.
