Highlands Ranch man arrested in connection with infant daughter's death

Posted

A Highlands Ranch man was arrested Jan. 10 in connection with the death of his infant daughter, according to a news release from the Douglas County Sheriff's Office.

On May 10, 2017, deputies responded to the 5300-block of Hospitality Place in Highlands Ranch to assist a 3-month-old baby who was not breathing, the release says. CPR was in progress.

The baby, Aliah Howatt, was immediately transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

After interviews and evidence collection, investigators believe James Howatt, 26, is responsible for the death of his daughter, the release says. On Jan. 4, a grand jury came back with a charge of child abuse resulting in death.

A warrant was issued for Howatt on Jan. 10 and investigators took him into custody from his home, the release says. He is being held at the Douglas County jail on a $25,000 bond.
