A 35-year-old man was arrested in New York following the death of his 13-month-old daughter, police said on Sunday.
Peter O'Keeffe, 35, turned himself in to police and was charged with second-degree murder in his daughter Jessica's death, said police spokeswoman Madelyne Galindo.
When police arrived at O'Keeffe's South Ozone Park home Saturday night, they found the baby unresponsive. Jessica was taken to Jamaica Hospital, where she died, media reports said.
An autopsy performed Sunday showed the baby died of blunt impact injuries to the head, skull fractures and brain injury, according to Ellen Borakove, a spokeswoman for the city's medical examiner.
The death was ruled a homicide.
