COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) – Police are investigating the death of another baby in Colorado Springs.

Police say 2-month-old Harmone’e Elam died after being taken to a hospital Dec. 15. El Paso County coroner’s officials say she died of blunt force trauma to the head and abdomen. Her 20-year-old father, Roderick Elam Jr., was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of child abuse resulting in death. His bond was set at $250,000.

Last week, Colorado Springs police arrested 22-year-old Nicholas Patrick Smith after his infant daughter died. Police said 8-month-old Elise Martinez-Mosley suffered head injuries.
