Police say they have arrested a 24-year-old man in connection to the death of a 2-year-old girl who died Wednesday.

The mother’s boyfriend had taken the toddler to a hospital Wednesday, according to a release from the Stockton Police Department. Investigators found that the 2-year-old looks to have died from blunt force trauma to the body.

Later, around 8:31 p.m., detectives arrested Miguel Flores in connection to the girl’s death. He was the one who had taken the toddler to the hospital.

Flores now faces two child abuse charges, one for the toddler’s death and another for allegedly abusing the girl’s 3-year-old sister.

He was booked at San Joaquin County Jail and is being held on $1,150,000 bail.
