The body of the 21-month-old girl was found last Wednesday in a trash bin near the Las Vegas Convention Center.

Police had been searching for the baby's girl's mother, Darrean Williams, and her boyfriend, William Marshall.

Authorities were tipped off that Williams, 22, and Marshall, 37, had fled Vegas for Phoenix. Police arrested the couple in Tempe late Saturday night.

Police said the toddler, whose diaper-clad body was found wrapped in a sheet, died of blunt-force trauma to the head.

According to investigators, evidence points to Marshall as the one who killed the baby.
