MILWAUKEE (AP) — Milwaukee police have identified the young child found dead and partially burned in a south side apartment building.

Police said Friday 4-year-old Antonio Distasio was found Thursday morning. A 23-year-old woman described as a family member of the child was arrested later Thursday. 

Investigators say the boy's death is a homicide.

“My heart really goes out to that baby.”

Quintella White says it all comes as a surprise---she says she lived directly across the hall from the suspect and victim.

''I hate to see somebody hurt an innocent baby, that’s an innocent baby.”

The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office will determine a cause of death. Police gave no other details.
