Indiana State Police are investigating the death of a baby in Spencer County.

An autopsy is expected Friday afternoon.

Detectives say they were called to the Stones Motel in Dale Thursday afternoon after 32-year-old Jorge Candelaria found his six month old son, Emilio, unresponsive.

Investigators tell 14 News the mother, 28-year-old Sheena Ransom, the father and the baby had all been sleeping in the same bed.

State police say once all of the evidence, including the autopsy results are in, the case will be forwarded to the county prosecutor's office.
