Selah Police arrest a man in connection with the death of his girlfriend's 23-month-old baby.

22-year-old David Holbrook was arrested last night at an apartment on Jim Clements Way.

Detectives say Holbrook was holding the child and allegedly threw the baby up in the air with enough force to cause the baby's head to strike the ceiling.

The baby had stopped breathing and later died at an area hospital.

Holbrook also admitted he delayed calling 911 and had initially lied to investigators because he didn't want to believe he caused the baby's death.

Holbrook will have a preliminary court hearing this afternoon.
