CALHOUN FALLS, S.C. (AP) -- State police are investigating the death of an Abbeville County infant. 

Coroner Ronnie Ashley says 10-month-old Emily Labounty died early Saturday after she was taken off life support. Ashley says the girl died from injuries to the head, and he has ruled her death a homicide. 

Calhoun Falls Police Chief John Galloway says officers were called to the girl's home August 8 in response to a call about a baby who was throwing up and having trouble breathing. 

The girl was placed on life support, but Ashley says she died Saturday after that assistance was removed. 

The State Law Enforcement Division is investigating. No charges have been filed.
