Posted: Updated:

AKRON, Ohio (AP) - Authorities are investigating the death of a 2-month-old infant found dead inside a home in northeast Ohio.

Summit County sheriff's detectives and the county medical examiner's office in Akron are investigating to determine how the infant died and whether any criminal charges will be brought against anyone caring for the child.

The infant was found dead inside the home in Coventry Township on Saturday morning. The Akron Beacon Journal reports that the child's and its family's identity were not immediately released.

Authorities say the infant's family called 911. The baby was unresponsive when authorities arrived. It was not immediately clear how long the infant may have been dead.

Sheriff's Inspector Bill Holland said he could not provide any additional details of the death.
