Man Wanted in Wisconsin Infant's Death Arrested Near Dallas

Authorities say a 29-year-old man wanted in the death of a 14-month-old boy in Wisconsin has been arrested in Texas.

Fond du Lac police said Daniel Antwon Griffin was arrested Tuesday at a motel in the Dallas area. Authorities said Griffin is wanted on a felony warrant for first-degree reckless homicide and two counts of child abuse causing great bodily harm in the boy's death and abuse of his twin brother.

Griffin is accused of stepping on the boy and killing him in Fond du Lac in July as the boy's mother watched. A criminal complaint states she has been accused of negligence in her son's death.

Griffin is being held in jail in Dallas and awaiting extradition to Wisconsin.
