The Kansas Bureau of Investigation said a Russell man has been arrested for first degree murder in connection with the death of a 14-month-old child.

The KBI said 27-year-old Jody Fox was arrested Thursday and booked into the Russell County jail for murder and child abuse charges.

The KBI said Fox was in a relationship with the child’s mother, and the child died in April of 2017.

The Kansas attorney general’s office will prosecute the case.
