WICHITA, Kan. (KAKE) - Wichita police have arrested two people in connection to the death of a 1-year-old boy on Thursday.
Officers responded at around 5:15 p.m. to a child abuse report at Wesley Medical Center. Police spokesperson Chad Ditch said hospital staff reported a family member and guardian of Lasiah Williams brought him to the hospital unresponsive.
A cause of death has not been released.
Officer Ditch said the investigation revealed Lasiah had been with his father, Kentrell Willingham, and his girlfriend, Xjohnna Hannah, for a few days.
"A family member of Lasiah met Kentrell, yesterday in the 1600 hundred block of South Oliver to exchange custody," Ditch said. "The family member left with Lasiah and a short time later would realize Lasiah was unresponsive."
The family member and Lasiah’s legal guardian immediately drove to the hospital.
Willingham and Hannah, both 25, were booked Friday for first-degree murder and aggravated child endangerment.
