MILWAUKEE (AP) -- Police say the death of a 14-year-old in Milwaukee is a homicide. And officers have arrested a 34-year-old man for the death.

Authorities say police were called to a home on the city's northwest side last Thursday where Jada Wright was pronounced dead at the scene. It was later determined the teen died of severe blunt force trauma.

The man was arrested on Saturday. He's expected to be charged in the next few days.
