Last Friday, January 25, 2013, Jeremy Millis was arrested for physically abusing the 8-month-old child of his former girlfriend while having the baby temporarily in his care. The baby had been in critical condition and intensive care at the Diamond Children’s Hospital at University of Arizona Medical Center (UAMC) ever since. This morning, detectives with the Sheriff’s Homicide Unit received notification that the infant had been taken off life support and had passed away at approximately 2:55 a.m. The suspect, Jeremy Millis, had previously been released from jail on bond. Detectives went to his parent’s house this morning and found Millis there. He was rearrested at approximately 9:25 a.m., this time on a charge of First Degree Murder. Millis was transported and booked into the Pima County Adult Detention Center. The investigation continues.
