Tucson man arrested in baby's death

A man arrested last week on child abuse charges we rearrested today for murder.

According to the Pima County Sheriff's Department, Jeremy Millis was arrested last Friday for physically abusing the 8-month-old child of his former girlfriend while having the baby temporarily in his care. The baby had been in critical condition and intensive care at Diamond Children's Hospital at University of Arizona Medical Center (UAMC) since then.

Today, detectives with the Sheriff's Homicide Unit, received notification from the hospital that the baby died early this morning after being taken off life support.

Investigators say the suspect, Jeremy Millis, had previously been released from jail on bond. Detectives went to his parent's house this morning and found Millis there. He was rearrested just before 9:30 this morning on a charge of first degree murder. The investigation continues.
