JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) -

The Johnson City Police Department says it has arrested a man in connection with the death of a 16-month-old baby.

Police arrested Jonathan Craverns, 27, Thursday morning and charged him with felony child abuse and neglect.

On August 19, officers responded to an unresponsive child at an apartment home located on Knob Creek Road. The child was transported to the Johnson City Medical Center but was pronounced dead.

Investigators say the baby was in the care of Craverns, the live-in boyfriend of the child's mother. It's believed that he left the baby unattended in the apartment for a period of time.

Craverns is currently behind bars at the Washington County Detention Center, where he is being held in lieu of a $50,000 bond.

Arraignment is set for 9:00 a.m. on October 14 in the Washington County Sessions Court.

The case remains under investigation as charges may be pending after autopsy results are complete.
