MILWAUKEE — Milwaukee police say they are investigating the death of a 13-month-old boy who authorities suspect was beaten by the mother’s ex-boyfriend.

The boy’s grandmother told WISN-TV the child was found unresponsive at his home around 7 p.m. Wednesday and appeared to have been beaten.

The suspect has not been named. He surrendered to police Thursday morning. Police say the death is suspicious and it’s being investigated as Milwaukee’s first homicide of the year.
