A 10-year-old Chippewa County girl is in the custody of juvenile authorities after the death of an infant. 

A caretaker called the sheriff's department last Tuesday about a six-month-old boy who was bleeding from the head and was unresponsive.  The child died at a St. Paul hospital.  Chippewa County Sheriff Jim Kowalczyk says the girl told investigators she stomped on the boy's head.  She made a court appearance Monday.  The girl's name hasn't been released due to her age.
