Rodden denies the allegations.

LAFAYETTE, Ind. (AP) - Police in Lafayette say they're investigating the homicide of a 14-month-old toddler.

She was transported to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, where life support was removed the following day.

Monroe County Prosecutor Chris Gaal says the county sheriff's department is investigating the incident.
