A 25-year-old Troy father faces an open murder charge after his daughter was found unresponsive in their home.

TROY, Mich. -

A Troy father has been charged with open murder and/or involuntary manslaughter in his 3-month-old daughter's death.

Kenny Little, 25, was arraigned on the charges Thursday afternoon.

Police say his daughter, Kendlyn Little, was found unresponsive Monday on a bedroom floor in her father's Troy home. She died before arriving at a hospital.

Kenny Little was standing in the same room she was found, just several feet away from the baby when officers arrived at the home.

The Oakland County Medical Examiner said the child died from blunt force trauma to the head.

Kenny Little has been in custody since Monday. He has been denied bond until his next court date, which is Monday.

Police responded to a 911 call early Monday morning, possible from the baby's grandfather, saying Kendlyn was not moving.

"They made a decision based upon what they had and to give an alternative account like that is very unusual in a case like this," said Little's attorney, Richard Lustig. "I believe there is a real question of fact as to how the damage occurred."

Sources tell Local 4 more than 12 people share the Troy house.
