The unthinkable happened to an infant in Connecticut due to what is being reported as the alleged recklessness of her father. A Hamden, Connecticut man is facing charges in connection with the death of his eleven-month-old daughter in July of 2017. This story from nbcconnecticut.com makes my heart ache for this little life that barely got the chance to live.

According to police, the infant's father, 32-year-old Daniel Armfield, drove her and two other children to Hamden Health Care to pick up the child's mother, but when Armfield arrived, he reportedly realized the child was not breathing. According to the report, the little girl was rushed to the hospital and died a few days later of what the medical examiner concluded was acute oxycodone intoxication.

Police said that when investigators searched Armfield’s car, they found numerous loose pills in the backseat, which were determined to be oxycodone. Police said officers also found cocaine, marijuana, and methamphetamine in the vehicle.

Armfield was arrested on March 29th of this year, and is facing charges of first-degree reckless endangerment, risk of injury to a minor, possession of marijuana, possession of a control substance and motor vehicle charges. He was held on a $75,000 bond and is due back in court later this month.
