Lansing police say a 37-year-old ex-convict has been arrested on murder and abuse charges in the death of his 3-month-old daughter.

Police say they arrested John H. Sanders of Lansing on an open murder charge, as well as charges of first-degree child abuse and being a habitual offender.

Police say detectives went to a hospital Friday afternoon after getting a report that a baby was being treated for serious internal injuries. Janayjah Sanders was pronounced dead Friday night.

District Judge Louise Alderson ordered Sanders jailed until a pre-exam conference Jan. 15 and a preliminary examination Jan. 17.

The jail says Sanders also is being held on an out-of-state warrant and says there's no record of whether he has a lawyer.
