Man charged in death of Battle Creek girl, 3

A 25-year-old Battle Creek man has been charged with murder in this summer's death of a 3-year-old girl who was in his care. The Battle Creek Enquirer reported police were looking for Leo Ackley. He's charged with open murder and first-degree child abuse in the death of Baylee Stenman. Baylee died Aug. 1 at a hospital in Kalamazoo after being found unresponsive July 28. Charges were announced this week by Calhoun County prosecutors after autopsy results showed the child died from head trauma.
