CLEVELAND — A man wanted in the death of his 8-month-old daughter was arrested in Cleveland, Wednesday afternoon. 

Andres Garcia, 40,was indicted by a grand jury in Mahoning County Wednesday morning for the January 17 death of his daughter. 

Shortly after the indictment, officials learned that Garcia was residing in Cleveland. He was arrested by the Northern Ohio Violent Fugitive Task Force at a home in the 2200 block of Forestdale Avenue Wednesday afternoon. 

“The death of a child is one of the highest priority cases that law enforcement agencies have to work, but dedicated police work by the Youngstown Police Department and swift communications across multiple counties led to the immediate arrest of this individual,” said U.S. Marshal Pete Elliott in a press release. 

Garcia was arrested on a warrant for charges of murder and child endangerment.
