Police have released the photo of the man charged in the death of a baby girl on Friday.

As KTSM previously reported, Pedro Favela Salgado, 26, is behind bars after 5-month-old America Salgado was found injured and unresponsive inside a West El Paso apartment.

America was later taken to the hospital where she died as a result of injuries that were allegedly sustained inside the home.

The police investigation is ongoing pending official autopsy results.
