RIVERVIEW — St. Louis County police say they have an 18-year-old man in custody after being called to a Riverview home where a baby was found dead with multiple injuries.

Sgt. Tracy Panus said Friday that county police responded to the residence Thursday.

She said the baby's mother was not home at the time the 14-month-old died but was present when police arrived.

Relatives told KTVI-TV that the 18-year-old was the mother's boyfriend who was supposed to be watching the child. Panus said the man's relationship to the victim was not immediately clear.
