Officers said Reese ran from the car. Police said that when they looked in the back seat of the vehicle, they found the body of 10-month-old Ayla Reeves.

Detectives said Reese was watching the child when he called the girl’s mother, Nikia Reeves, 19, and said the child was not breathing.

When Reeves went to the home, she said Reese was acting suspicious, police said. The three reportedly got into the car. Police said that’s when Reeves questioned Reese about what happened to the baby.
