IOWA CITY, Iowa — A Columbus Junction baby being treated for severe head trauma has died from her injuries.

The Iowa Department of Public Safety says four-month-old Marleen Jimenez died Saturday at the University of Iowa Hospital in Iowa City.

The father of the baby, 20-year-old Oscar Jimenez, is charged with one count of multiple acts of child endangerment in connection with the injuries.

An autopsy was performed Monday on the baby but officials have not released any results.

The investigation into the case continues.
