FAIRFIELD, Maine (AP) - Maine State Police are investigating the death of a baby boy in Fairfield.

State police spokesman Steve McCausland said 5-and-1/2-month-old Liam Clifton was found dead in his father's bed Friday morning.

Police say officers were called to the Fairfield home where the baby lived with his parents Kayla Clifton and Eric Bacheller around 10:30 a.m.

The state medical examiner's office is expected to perform an autopsy this weekend. It is protocol for police to investigate the deaths of children under the age of 3.
