(KSL News) -- A medical examiner has ruled the death of a 16-month old Ogden girl as homicide.

Lesly Morales died Wednesday night. Her parents took her to a clinic because she was lethargic. She was then taken to a hospital where she died.

Police say her death may have been caused by abuse. They found evidence of a broken bone and cuts on her face.

No one's been charged in the case, but the girl's father--21-year old Ernesto Morales--was arrested on unrelated charges.
