WATERLOO, Iowa -- A Michigan man has been charged in the death of a Waterloo child.

According to the Waterloo Police Department, first responders were called to 436 Cutler St. at 7:21 p.m. March 12 for a two-year-old child that wasn't breathing. Police said the child's caretaker, and later, paramedics, performed CPR on the child. The child's body was cold to the touch and her body temperature was extremely low, police said.

Police said she was pronounced dead at Allen Hospital and was determined to have died from probable hypothermia.

On Sept. 30, a warrant was issued for Nathaniel Q. Knight, 37, of Charlotte, Mich. for child endangerment resulting in death. Police said Knight was the one who was caring for the child the night she died.

Knight was arrested Oct. 1 in Kalamazoo County, Mich. and was returned to Black Hawk County this weekend. He remains in custody at the Black Hawk County Jail.
