KALAMAZOO  (WKZO) -- An autopsy is planned today on the body of an 8-month old baby from Kalamazoo Township to try to verify the cause of death.

The child’s 23-year-old father, Keon Peterson told responding authorities that he had left the baby bathing with his 4- year-old sibling.

When he came back, the baby had drowned. Emergency crews responded to the Somerset on the Hill Apartments on North Arlington and began resuscitation efforts, but they were unsuccessful and the infant, Keon Peterson Jr. was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Family members are cooperating with the investigation.
