SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - The live-in boyfriend of an Alpine woman whose toddler daughter was found dead under suspicious circumstances in their East County home was arrested Friday on suspicion of killing the infant.
   
Wiliey Foster, 26, is expected to face a murder charge in the death of 18-month-old Leah Brown-Meza. Sheriff's deputies and paramedics responding to a report that a child had stopped breathing in a motor home parked on a residential property in the 300 block of Hunter Lane found the girl's body shortly after noon Tuesday, according to sheriff's officials.
   
Homicide and child-abuse detectives were summoned to investigate the child's death "based on the circumstances and the presence of additional injuries to the victim,'' sheriff's Lt. Kenneth Nelson said.
   
The county Medical Examiner's Office determined Leah died from blunt force trauma. Other autopsy results remain sealed, Nelson said.
