A 17-year-old father has been charged with manslaughter in the death last year of his infant daughter in Connecticut. The teenager was returned to Connecticut Wednesday following his arrest in Columbia, S.C., where he had moved with family members after his daughter’s death in Clinton. His name was not released because of his age. The 8-week-old girl died last March after police responded to a report that she was not breathing. She died a few days later at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Medical staff told police that the infant had injuries consistent with shaken baby syndrome.
