Booking photo of David Marvin HaasDavid Marvin Haas Jr is arrested and charged in the death of a 2-year-old child.

Police were dispatched to the 900 block of Garden Drive in Essex on June 29 for a cardiac arrest after Haas called 9-1-1 just before 9 p.m. Haas was babysitting the child, his girlfriend's son, when the boy stopped breathing. The child was transported to MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center where he was pronounced deceased.

The Baltimore County Police Homicide Unit was contacted due to the age and injuries observed on the child. An autopsy was conducted by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, the results of which were returned to police on July 8 indicating cause and manner of death to be multiple injuries and homicide.

The Homicide Unit continued their investigation into the child's death and determined that the injuries he suffered were inconsistent with the account of events given to police by Haas.

Haas was arrested on Tuesday, charged with First Degree Child Abuse Resulting in Death and First Degree Murder. Following a bail review hearing yesterday, he is held on no bond status at the Baltimore County Detention Center pending trial.
