      YAKIMA, Wash. -- A Toppenish man blamed for the death of his baby girl appeared in Yakima County court.

      Francisco Gasca, Jr. is charged with second-degree murder. Investigators say he tried telling doctors the two-month-old fell in October. But, doctors in Seattle say the baby was violently shaken or jarred.

      Gasca will be arraigned next week. His bail was set at $1 million.
