Dad RYAN TROWBRIDGE has been charged with 1st-degree murder in the death of his 4-month-old daughter. Daddy says he just found her "blue and unresponsive" after putting her down for a nap. However, the autopsy shows that the baby had fatal head injuries.

So was Daddy doing "caretaking" while Mom was working or what? Who knows. As there is no mention of Mom here at all.

ANKENY, Iowa — Ankeny police say a Des Moines man is charged with first-degree murder in the death of his infant daughter last summer.

WHO-TV in Des Moines says 20-year-old Ryan Trowbridge was charged Wednesday. He's accused of causing fatal injuries to his 4-month-old daughter, Rylee, on July 12.

Trowbridge and his daughter lived in Ankeny at the time. Police received a call about an infant who was not breathing. According to police, Trowbridge told officers his daughter had been laid down for a nap and he found her blue and unresponsive.

An autopsy showed the child suffered head injuries.

Trowbridge is in the Polk County jail on $500,000 bond. There was no listing for him on the state's online court system. It was not immediately known if he had an attorney.
