Plumas County Sheriff Department deputies responded Thursday to a report of a child who was unresponsive at Stringfellow’s Peppard Flat Road apartment, said Sheriff Greg Hagwood.
Stringfellow was arrested for felony child abuse.
When the toddler died on Friday at a Reno hospital, Stringfellow was re-booked on a charge of homicide. His bail was doubled to $1 million, Hagwood said.
