DES MOINES, Iowa -- An Ankeny charged in the death of his infant daughter is out of jail after posting bond.
Ryan Trowbridge, 20, made his initial appearance Dec 22. He's charged with causing fatal injuries to his 4-month-old daughter, Rylee, on July 12.
According to court records, George Trowbridge posted $10,000 cash bond on Jan. 4 for Ryan's release. An arraignment is scheduled for February 4th.
Ryan Trowbridge and his daughter lived in Ankeny at the time of his daughter's death. Police received a call about an infant who was not breathing.
According to police, Ryan Trowbridge told officers his daughter had been laid down for a nap, and he found her blue and unresponsive.
"The injuries that we found were inconsistent with the father's story," said Ankeny police Lt. Ed Hamilton.
An autopsy showed the child suffered head injuries.
"The medical examiner's report showed there were extensive internal head injuries and that those injuries were inflicted," Lt. Hamilton said.
