NORFOLK, Va. - A man the Norfolk Police Department charged earlier this November in connection with the death of his 9-month-old daughter, has been denied bond.

Kasiam A. Tinsley

Around 9:40 a.m., crews from Norfolk Fire and the Norfolk Police Department responded to the 300 block of Nicholson Street for an unresponsive 9-month-old. When first responders arrived, the girl was taken to Children's Hospital of the King's Daughters, where she died shortly after arriving.

Her death was initially investigated as undetermined, but the Medical Examiner ruled her death as a homicide. Her cause of death has not been released.

As a result of the investigation, detectives charged the child's father, 28-year-old Kasiam A. Tinsley, with second-degree murder. He is currently being held in the City of Norfolk Jail without bond.

Anyone with information in this case is asked to call the Norfolk Crime Line at 1-888-LOCK-U-UP (1-888-562-5887).
