The father of an infant girl discovered dead in Brunswick has been arrested on suspicion of first-degree murder and child abuse, the Frederick County Sheriff's Office says.

Sheriff's deputies and Brunswick police officers arrested Jason August Zirinsky, 25, of Brunswick Monday at 415 W. Potomac St. in connection with the death of his 2-month-old daughter, Lexi Regina Zirinsky, Capt. Tim Clarke says in a news release.

His arrest came after the State Medical Examiner's Office in Baltimore classified the infant's manner of death as homicide and the cause of death from multiple traumatic injuries.

While responding to central booking, Zirinsky complained of chest pains and was taken to Frederick Memorial Hospital, where he is in custody awaiting treatment.

Brunswick Police were called to the residence on West Potomac Street at about 7 a.m. Sunday about a baby girl who was unresponsive. The infant was deceased when officers arrived, the Brunswick Police Department says.
