TACOMA, Wash. – Bail is set at one-million dollars for a Pierce County man accused of placing his six-week-old daughter in a freezer.

Prosecutors have charged 25-year-old Tyler James Deutsch with first-degree assault of a child, first-degree criminal mistreatment, and interfering with the reporting of domestic violence.

Authorities say the child suffered injuries to her head, leg, and arm, and her body temperature was 84 degrees after she had been left in the freezer for about an hour.
