The Benton County Sheriff’s Office arrested a 27-year-old Corvallis man following the death of a 2-month-old infant girl, the law enforcement agency announced.
Andrew Levi Oaks, the child’s father, was jailed on a felony charge of first-degree criminal mistreatment. The sheriff’s department said an autopsy later this week will determine additional charges.
Deputies responded at 3 p.m. to the 1700 block of Northeast Conifer Boulevard for a call of an unconscious 2-month-old female, BCSO said. Medics transported the baby immediately to Good Samaritan Regional Medical Center in Corvallis where the infant was pronounced deceased.
Oaks is scheduled for an arraignment hearing on Monday afternoon.
The Corvallis Fire and Corvallis Police departments assisted with the case.
Anyone with additional information about the case (No. 22-526) is asked to email BentonCoSheriff@co.benton.or.us or call the anonymous tip line at 541-753-8477.
