A Delta baby is dead and her biological father is behind bars after police say he murdered her.

Tuesday, Delta Police arrested 20-year-old Daven Paul Beck on charges of first degree murder and child abuse resulting in death among others.

Officials say back in December 2008, Delta Police were called out to Delta Memorial Hospital regarding serious injuries to his five month old daughter. While they won't say exactly what those injuries were, officials say they were bad enough that she had to be flown to The Children's Hospital in Aurora. She later died there.

Officials say after an extensive investigation they believe Beck is responsible for her death, but are not yet saying why.

An arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday afternoon.
