UNIONTOWN, Pennsylvania — A Pennsylvania man sought in the killing of his girlfriend’s infant daughter has been captured in Ohio.
Authorities say Derrick Bass was arrested Monday afternoon in Cleveland without incident. He’s charged with homicide and several other counts in the death of 11-month-old Niomie Rose Miller.
Authorities say the 29-year-old Uniontown man was watching the girl and two of his own children at an apartment complex on Saturday while Niomie’s mother was at work. The couple had only been dating for a few days.
When the mother got home from work, she discovered some of her electronics were missing and no one was in the apartment. She eventually found her child covered in blankets in her playpen.
The child’s cause of death has not been released.
