The death of a young child in the city has been ruled a homicide.



A person of interest is in police custody but has not been formally charged. Around 10:30 Monday night, Baltimore police got a call from a home in the 3400 block of Callaway Avenue in Northwest Baltimore.

Originally, they were investigating the death of a five-year-old girl as suspicious.

But tonight, police are calling it a homicide.

A spokesman for the Baltimore City Fire Department says a 911 caller reported the girl was found unconscious in a bath tub. She was taken to Sinai Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police are not saying if the man in custody is related to the victim.

"Police had somebody on the pavement last night in handcuffs," said Charles Rawlings, a neighbor. "It was a shock, a shame somebody would take a child's life like that," he said.

Police say they will give us an update in the morning.

Her name is MYA CARR

"BALTIMORE -- Baltimore police said they've arrested the father of a 5-year-old girl and charged him in her beating death.

Police said the investigation began after they received a call after 11 p.m. Monday from the 3400 block of Calloway Avenue in Northwest Baltimore.

The girl, identified as Mya Carr, was taken to a nearby hospital, where she later died.

The death was initially labeled suspicious, but was later classified as a homicide. The girl's father, 22-year-old Matthew Carr, was arrested on Wednesday.

"It was painfully obvious to the medical teams at Sinai Hospital that she had suffered multiple body traumas," said Detective Donny Moses. "She had fractures in her face and bruises all up and down her body. It is a horrific thing, and no child should have to go through something like that."

Detectives said Matthew Carr was the only person at home with the girl at the time. According to court documents, he appeared to have been drinking and "admitted to beating his child repeatedly with his hands" all over her body.

"He basically said she had a bowel movement on herself, so he got angry and he beat her," Moses said.

Matthew Carr is in custody facing multiple charges including first-degree murder, assault and child abuse.

Detectives said they believe this wasn't the first time the little girl met with violence.

"In looking at her doctors' records, we determined a lot of her injuries were old. So, at some point she'd been beaten in the past. We do feel like she'd been suffering," Moses said.

Neighbors who watched Mya play when she visited her dad were saddened to learn she had died. A small memorial was put up on the porch of the home on Wednesday.

"She was a polite little girl. She had manners and everything," said neighbor Stranjay Whitley. "How could you be that cruel to beat a little girl?"

"It's heartbreaking. Devastating," said neighbor Charles Rawlings. "I wouldn't do that to a dog or a cat, much less a human being."

Any news of the mother? If she was living with them she was fully aware of what a brute this less than man is.
