Andrew J. Sandstrom, 24, turned himself in to the Moorhead Police Department at about 1:15 p.m. today.

He was charged Tuesday with second-degree manslaughter in the death of his daughter, Christiana.

Sandstrom was not considered a flight risk and cooperated with law enforcement and so was allowed to attend his daughter’s funeral before having to turn himself in, according to a statement released by Moorhead Police Chief David Ebinger.
