A 19-month-old child died Wednesday in Hampton, New Hampshire, and his stepfather has been arrested.
Police are calling the incident an unattended death, but 30-year-old Leo Witham was arrested Friday and charged with endangering the welfare of a child, "purposely violating a duty to care," drug possession and falsifying physical evidence.
No further information about the circumstances of the child's death was released.
