SANDY SPRINGS, Ga. - The boyfriend of a Sandy Springs babysitter is facing murder charges in connection to the death of a 2-year-old girl who was in her care.
An investigation was launched on Dec. 9 after a medical call was received regarding an unresponsive child inside an apartment on Monterey Parkway, the Sandy Springs Police Department said.
"We got a 911 call about an unresponsive child. Sandy Springs Police Department along with EMS responded. They gave the child CPR and they transported her to the hospital where she was later pronounced dead by medical personnel," said Sgt. Salvador Ortega, with the Sandy Springs Police Department.

According to Fallon's mother, Flood said that her daughter got hurt at the playground, but according to the police, her story did not add up.

An autopsy performed on the child revealed she suffered severe injuries that resulted in her death during her care by the suspect, police said.
"Whatever she said was not consistent with the severe injuries they had," Ortega said.
Flood is charged with two counts of felony murder, one count of malice murder, aggravated battery, and cruelty to children. Meyers is now charged with second-degree cruelty to children and murder in the second degree.
The investigation into Fallon's death is still ongoing.
