Mansfield police are investigating the death of a baby, who had lived in a house with what's described as a meth lab in the attic. 

The 3 month old boy was taken to Ohio Health Med-Central Mansfield Hospital Monday evening, where he was dead on arrival.


That prompted police to obtain a search warrant for the home at 5-84 West Fourth Street. 

29-year-old Alexander Dixon is charged with illegal manufacture of drugs and illegal assembly or possession of chemicals.

He is the mother's live-in boyfriend but is not the baby's father. 

The woman has not been charged and is not being identified.

An autopsy will determine the child's cause of death.  Foul play is not suspected.
