MADISON COUNTY, Ind. -- The Madison County Prosecutor says a second arrest has been made in connection with the death of an 18-month-old Anderson boy.

Harlan Haines died in February at Riley Hospital for Children.

Police say his mother's then-boyfriend, Dylan Tate, hit a utility pole while he was trying to drive Harlan to the hospital.

Prosecutor Rodney Cummings says Tate, 26, was arrested Thursday on a preliminary charge of neglect resulting in death.
