A 39-year-old man is facing several felony charges after the body of a 16-month-old boy was found in a ditch in Genesee County last Thursday.

Police were sent to the 9400 block of N. Morrish Rd. in Montrose Township around 1:30 p.m. after a resident discovered the body. The investigation led to the arrest of the suspect, who faces charges of felony murder, first-degree child abuse, concealing the death of a person and third-offense domestic violence.

The man has not been named as his formal arraignment is pending.
