CHICAGO (AP) — A Nevada man wanted in the beating death of his 10-month-old child has been arrested in Chicago.
Authorities say Eric Chu was arrested Friday at a Greyhound bus station by FBI agents and local police.
The 31-year-old Chu of Las Vegas is charged with murder in the death Wednesday of his child, whose name and sex authorities have not released.
