A Toppenish father is charged with second degree murder in the death of his 2-month-old daughter.

26-year-old Francisco Gasca Junior was taken into custody today in White Swan after eluding police and crashing his vehicle.

Detectives say the infant died yesterday at a Seattle hospital after sustaining injuries from a violent encounter, such as violent shaking or jarring, and not from a fall as previously reported to police.

His bail is set at $1 million.
