MINDEN, Nev. (AP) - A 23-year-old man has been arrested in Sacramento, California, in the death of his 2-month-old child in Nevada.

Douglas County sheriff's Sgt. Pat Brooks says Trent Getty awaits extradition to Nevada after his arrest at a bus depot.

He says the baby died early Saturday morning after being taken off life support, and the cause of death is pending an autopsy.

Deputies responded to a Gardnerville medical center on Monday after receiving a report of an unresponsive infant who was brought in by the father.

During an investigation, detectives developed information that the child's injuries appeared to be the result of traumatic abuse.

An arrest warrant was issued for Getty and his bail was set at $1 million.
