Baby's Death Ruled a Homicide

(9/6/13) Eau Claire Authorities say a newborn baby's death has been ruled a homicide.

Police say on August 28, a 15-year-old teen was brought to a hospital with complications from childbirth at her residence. When officers arrived, they found the baby girl was dead. Investigators discovered the baby was born alive and was near full-term, determining the baby died of "homicidal actions". Police say they later learned the teen was allegedly a sexual assault victim of 48-year-old Larry Johnson, who is believed to be the baby's father. He is charged with sexual assault of a child. Investigators say the teen's role in the baby's death is still being investigated and her identity will not be revealed.
