WAYNESBORO, MS (WDAM) - A Wayne County man has been arrested and charged in the Friday death of his 17-month old stepchild.

Waynesboro Police arrested Scott Smith, 27, Sunday and charged him with murder of Ally Waldrop.

The mother of the child called 911 Friday night, said police. She told the operator her child was not breathing. The child was pronounced dead at Wayne General Hospital.

Police said the child and her 2-year-old sibling were in Smith's custody before the mother arrived home from work.

Smith was then held for questioning.

The child's body was sent to Jackson for an autopsy. The state medical examiner's office ruled the child's death a homicide, but would not disclose her injures.
