Mesquite PD: Man arrested after killing friend's 2-year-old daughter

Police say a Mesquite man murdered his friend's 2-year-old daughter.

Toron Eugene Williams, 30, is charged with capital murder and is being held in jail on a $250,000 bond.

Mesquite PD says officers responded Sunday to a caller who said the child, London Bakker, was found unresponsive in bed. When officers arrived, they learned the girl was taken to the hospital by her mother where she was pronounced dead.

Police arrested Williams and say the mother is not a suspect.

The medical examiner has not released the toddler's cause of death.
