Police arrested John H. Sanders of Lansing on an open murder charge, as well as charges of first-degree child abuse and being a habitual offender.

Detectives went to a hospital Friday afternoon after getting a report that a baby was being treated for serious internal injuries. Janayjah Sanders was pronounced dead Friday night.

District Judge Louise Alderson ordered Sanders jailed until a pre-exam conference Jan. 15 and a preliminary examination Jan. 17.

The jail said Sanders also is being held on an out-of-state warrant.
