Hartford police have arrested the boyfriend of the mother of a 13-month-old girl who died Thursday after being taken to the hospital for cardiac arrest.

David Brown-Barrett, 19, was charged with first degree assault and risk of injury, but those charges could be amended as the investigation progresses.

His bail was set at $300,000.

Police got a call from the hospital about 12:30 p.m. that CPR was being performed on a child in cardiac arrest who had been dropped off by private vehicle.

She was pronounced dead at the hospital.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday.
