Infant found dead in Montgomery Co.

A 2-month-old infant was found dead Wednesday at a home in Mount Sterling.

Dakota Justin Allen Hall was found not breathing in his bassinet by his mother, Cassandra Hall, Montgomery County Coroner Wallace Johnson said.

He was taken to St. Joseph Hospital in Mount Sterling, where he was pronounced dead.

State police said foul play is not suspected.

It appeared that the infant died due to sudden infant death syndrome, Johnson said. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday at the state medical examiner's office in Frankfort.
