Updated 8 years ago

(WABI) – The eight-month old baby hospitalized after being injured at her home Thursday night has died.

Emily-Leigh Cole had been on life support for more than a day.

Cole was the daughter of 32-year-old Libby Saint Pierre. According to detectives, Saint Pierre’s boyfriend, 23-year-old Todd Gamache, was taking care of the infant Thursday night.

Police were called to the Auburn apartment and found the baby unresponsive.

She was taken to a Lewiston hospital and later transferred to Maine Medical center in Portland, where she died.

Gamache was arrested on three outstanding warrants unrelated to the baby’s injuries. He’s being held in the Androscoggin county jail.

Cole’s body was taken to the Maine Medical Examiner’s office, an autopsy is scheduled for Sunday.

State Police say no decision will be made on charges until detectives speak with officials from the Attorney General’s office next week.
