MANTECA, Calif. (AP) — A 21-year-old man has been arrested in Central California on suspicion of killing his girlfriend's 19-month-old daughter.

The Record of Stockton reports that Longino Lamont Tolefree Jr. was arrested at his workplace in Lathrop on Monday evening. He appeared in court on Wednesday, but it was not immediately clear whether he entered a plea or was assigned an attorney.

Police say Tolefree took the toddler to a Manteca hospital on Saturday and told investigators he had medical problems. An autopsy, however, determined the toddler was the victim of homicide.

The Record reports that the exact cause of death has not been released.
