TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) — Authorities in Tucson say the parents of a baby girl are in custody in connection with her death.

The Pima County Sheriff's Department says 20-year-old Olivia Paige Martinez and 26-year-old Jonathan Niles Kesterson were arrested in San Diego in the death of Vanessa Martinez.

The girl was born last October but it's unclear when she died.

Authorities say the investigation began when Kesterson was arrested April 12 on unrelated charges in San Diego.

While in the custody of the San Diego County Jail, authorities say Kesterson made comments to corrections officers regarding the death.

Pima County sheriff's detectives flew to San Diego to interview Kesterson and arrest warrants were issued for the parents.

They say Olivia Martinez was returned to Pima County on Friday and Kesterson was brought back Monday.
