Police: Ohio baby who died had adult bite marks

TROY, Ohio (AP) — Police in Ohio say an 8-month-old baby who died from multiple injuries appeared to have adult bite marks, including one on the leg.

A police report on the death of Caleb Durig says officers in Troy in western Ohio also found blood on the floor and the infant’s crib. They went to the home Monday in response to a 911 call from parents Jason and Tara Durig, who said the boy was not breathing.

An autopsy found the baby died from multiple blunt-force trauma. Detectives said in their report that they found many bruises and signs of possible strangulation, and that the child may have been dead for some time.

The Durigs have been charged with felony child endangering and are each jailed on $50,000 bond.
