WATERLOO, Iowa (AP) — A 32-year-old Waterloo man has been arrested in connection with the death of his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter last year.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports (http://bit.ly/2dyTZWj ) that Chad Allen Little was arrested Friday and made his initial appearance in court Saturday. He is charged with first-degree murder and child endangerment.

Online court records don’t list the name an attorney who could comment on Little’s behalf.

Little’s 31-year-old girlfriend, Kristi Buss, was also arrested last week on suspicion of child endangerment in connection with the May 2015 death of Gracie Buss.

Prosecutors say Little abused Buss’ two children, and she didn’t stop the abuse that led to Gracie Buss’ death. She was found unresponsive with blunt force head injuries.

Little was being held in lieu of $1.1 million bond on Sunday.
