On Jan. 23, at about 4:51 p.m., Metro police were 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. Jordyn died the next night.

Police identified Chu as the suspect, determined he had left Las Vegas and arrested him in Chicago.

Anyone with information about this case should contact the Metro Police Abuse and Neglect Section by phone at 702-828-3364.
