ROCHESTER (WCCO) — A 25-year-old man has been arrested Monday in connection with the death of a 4-month-old baby boy in Rochester, according to police.

Police say Michael Roy Smith of Rochester had been residing with the baby boy’s 21-year-old mother and a 30-year-old man at a home on the 500 block of 36th Street Southwest. Smith was allegedly caring for the child when the death occurred.

The child suffered from visible signs of trauma, police said, but preliminary autopsy results are pending.

Police have interviewed the baby’s mother and the other man. Both have been cooperating with the investigation.

Addition arrests are unlikely, police said.
