The El Dorado Police Department arrested 21-year-old Desmond Evans on capital murder charges for the death of his girlfriend’s 18-month-old daughter Tuesday.
The girl reportedly stopped breathing at her residence while Evans and another male were watching her. She was later transported to the Medical Center of South Arkansas by ambulance.
Originally, officials did not believe foul play was suspected but the body was transported to the Arkansas State Crime Lab for an autopsy.
More to come.
