Murder InvestigationBATTLE CREEK, Mich-  DePaul Brown will be charged with open murder in the death of a one year old toddler according to the Battle Creek Police Department. Brown was in a Calhoun County court this morning for a probable cause hearing with a magistrate.

Brown is the boyfriend of the toddler’s mom, but not the father, according to police. The two were home earlier in the day but not when police arrived; only the babysitter was home along with other young children.

At this point in their investigation, police don’t believe the toddler’s mom had any part in her death.

No bond has been set yet for Brown, he will be back in court on Monday for an arraignment hearing.
