FOND DU LAC — The Fond du Lac Police Department has arrested a suspect accused of homicide in the June 2018 death of a 2-month-old girl.

A 26-year-old woman was taken into custody in Milwaukee — where police say she was living — on Jan. 9, 2020.

Authorities were called to a Fond du Lac home on June 25, 2018, for a report of a 2-month-old girl choking. Upon arrival, police determined the girl was not breathing and attempted life-saving measures. The girl was later pronounced dead at an area hospital. An autopsy determined the cause of death was the result of a homicide.
