The stepfather of a 14-month-old from Newaygo is the main suspect in the child's death.
Laylah Heether died on Tuesday after becoming unresponsive while at the home of 29-year-old Wayne Brown, the girl's stepfather.
Investigators say Heether died as a result of child abuse.
She had been taken to the hospital last week and Brown reported the girl had fallen off a couch.
Court documents state that doctors found Heether had old and new bone fractures, bleeding on her brain, and bruising.
