MEDINA, Ohio (AP) – Police say someone servicing television equipment found a young girl’s badly decomposed body in a crib at a northeast Ohio apartment, and her father was arrested.
    
Medina police say the remains discovered Wednesday are believed to be a girl born in October 2013. An autopsy was planned to determine how she died.
    
Police say her father, Eric Warfel, was arrested without incident in Westlake. The Medina man remained jailed Thursday pending a court appearance on a felony corpse abuse charge.
    
Authorities had no information on an attorney for him.
    
A 7-year-old daughter found with Warfel was placed with relatives as officers worked to locate the mother of the deceased child.
    
Northeast Ohio Media Group reports that Warfel had another daughter who died as an infant in March 2013.
