Man arrested in death of baby

VAN BUREN, Ark. (AP) - A man is being held without bond after being arrested for the death of his girlfriend's 1-year-old baby. Delvin Alex Pendleton, 26, of Pocola, Okla., was arrested Saturday in Crawford County, Ark., for the killing of Alexis Mae Shores-Evans.

Officials say the baby suffered trauma that suggested she was thrown to a floor. Investigators say Alexis was taken to a hospital on Oct. 4 and died last Tuesday.

Pendleton is charged with first-degree murder. Officials say he will have a bond hearing later this week. --- Information from: Southwest Times Record,
