LOMITA (AP) — Authorities say a parolee has been arrested on suspicion of killing his girlfriend’s 2-year-old son in Lomita.

Sheriff’s Capt. Mike Parker says 25-year-old Daniel Vega was taken into custody late Thursday on suspicion of murder, hours after the toddler was found dead in an apartment at the Harbor Hills housing project.

An autopsy has been scheduled to determine the cause of the child’s death.

Parker says Vega was wanted for a parole violation and was being held without bail.
