It is believed that the mother's boyfriend, Dauntorian Sanders, called 911 then hung up. The operator called him back and he reported that the child wasn't breathing.

Chandler police officers responded to the home near Loop 202 and Cooper Road at approximately 3 p.m. Monday.

Officers and firefighters administered CPR then transported the child to a hospital where she later died.

Police say autopsy findings indicated the child's death is a homicide attributed to multiple blunt force traumas.

According to Chandler police Sgt. Joe Favazzo, the girl was covered in bruises from apparent belt and belt buckle strikes.

Police officers arrested the girl's mother, Susan Witbracht, 26, and Sanders, 23, for the child's death.

Witbracht and Sanders were booked for first-degree murder and child abuse.
