Police said the girl was in the care of her father on May 28 when she stopped breathing and was taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Injuries revealed during an autopsy were “not consistent with the father’s story,” police said.

Allen was taken into custody on May 31 and is being held without bond. He does not have an attorney listed in court records.

Police also said the victims of two previously reported non-fatal shootings had died from their injuries.
