Police Question Father of Baby Killed in Bronx Fire

By

The father of the 1-month-old infant found in a burning Bronx apartment on Thursday is being questioned by the NYPD, who believe he was responsible for the violent death of the child's mother. (An NYPD spokesman told the New York Post that the little girl may have died from physical trauma —  as opposed to smoke inhalation, which had been their initial assumption.) The baby's mother, 32-year-old Luisa Rodriguez, who was stabbed to death next to her child, had taken out a restraining order against the as-yet-unidentified man, who'd moved out four months ago. She'd also called the cops on him at least twice.
