PHOENIX A Phoenix man is in custody in connection with the death of his girlfriend's toddler daughter.

Larry Works III had his initial court appearance Wednesday after being arrested on suspicion of one count of first-degree murder and one count of child abuse.

Works, 20, and his girlfriend took the 18-month-old to Phoenix Baptist Hospital on Jan. 20.

Medical staff pronounced her dead during treatment and notified Phoenix police.

Detectives said they examined the toddler's body and saw what appeared to be two burn marks on her left leg, a bite mark on her abdomen, and bruising to her chest and abdomen.

An autopsy determined the injuries were caused by blunt force.
