FITCHBURG, Mass. (AP) - Prosecutors say two people are facing charges in the death of a 6-year-old girl.
The Worcester district attorney's office in a statement Wednesday announced the arrests of a man and a woman, but did not provide names, the charges they face, or their relationship to the child.
They face arraignment Wednesday.
District Attorney Joseph Early told reporters that police responding to a 911 call at a Fitchburg home Tuesday found an injured 9-year-old boy and a non-responsive 6-year-old girl.
Early says the children were taken to the hospital, where the girl was pronounced dead. The district attorney says the boy's injuries are believed to be non-life threatening.
Fitchburg Police Chief Earnest Martineau says it was not a "random act" and there is no danger to the public.
