LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A 31-year-old man was arrested Friday in Chicago for killing his 10-month-old baby in northwest Las Vegas earlier this week, according to Metro Police.

Eric Chu was arrested in Chicago "in connection to the murder."

On Jan. 23, at about 4:51 p.m., LVMPD was called to the 9200 block of West Charleston Boulevard to respond to a 10-month-old baby, identified as Jordyn Chu, who was not breathing and a man threatening medical staff. Jordyn was taken to Summerlin Hospital with life-threatening injuries "that appeared to be a result of battery," Metro said. Chu was later taken to UMC.

Jordyn died the next night. Police identified Eric as the suspect and determined he had left Las Vegas. Metro's Repeat Offender Program determined Eric may have been headed to Chicago. U.S. Marshals found Eric in Chicago Friday and arrested him. He was awaiting extradition as of Friday evening.

Metro said anyone with information about this case should contact the LVMPD Abuse and Neglect Section by phone at 702-828-3364, or by email at AbuseNeglectReporting@LVMPD.com.
