NORWICH, Conn. — Connecticut authorities say a baby was fatally mauled by his family’s dog, and police are looking for the infant’s father in connection with a fire set in another city.
Police and medics were called to an apartment in Norwich shortly before 8:30 p.m. Monday and found that the family’s pit bull had mauled the 1-month-old boy, who was pronounced dead at the scene.
At about 4 a.m. Tuesday, New London firefighters were called to a house fire. Police say they’re looking for the baby’s father, Timothy Settles, in connection with the fire.
It’s not clear how Settles is connected to the New London home.
