ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis-area man has been charged with child endangerment following his infant daughter's death from the powerful opioid fentanyl.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports 32-year-old Demarco Washington is in jail on $250,000 cash only bail for the charge. No attorney was listed for Washington in online court records Thursday.

The newspaper reports that Washington's 11-month-old daughter, Journey, was found unresponsive Feb. 18. Authorities say she later died of fentanyl exposure.

Charging documents say Washington told a detective that he lost a capsule of fentanyl in his daughter's bedroom that day.
