The police arrested Nyishia Corbitt, 33, for the death of Alina Barnes, a year and ten months, which was under his care.
A surveillance video near the apartment of the suspect shows that he leaves the building with the child in a stroller and then walks to the park on the other side of the road on October 9, according to the authorities, who they say that at the time of the video the child was already dead. Corbitt then returns to the apartment without the child, according to the video.
"It is a terrible tragedy," said the police captain of Philadelphia, Jack Ryan at a press conference.
