GRAND FORKS - An 18-year-old Grand Forks man has been charged with murder following an investigation into the death of a five-month-old baby in May.

Mason Kamrowski, 18, of Grand Forks, was charged with murder, a Class AA felony, on Friday, Sept. 7. Kamrowski was taken into custody Friday and is currently incarcerated in the Grand Forks County Correctional Center.

On May 21, the baby was brought to Altru by a caretaker after she stopped breathing. She was ultimately transferred to Sanford Medical Center in Fargo for further treatment. The baby died on May 22.

Sgt. Michael Jennings, with the department’s Criminal Investigations Bureau, declined to release any further information about the cause of death or the injuries the baby sustained in the incident.

Police said that although charges have been filed the case is still an active and ongoing investigation.
