(AP NEWS) -- A New Haven man has been named by police as a suspect in the slaying of his girlfriend and the disappearance of their 1-year-old child.

Jose Morales of New Haven has been in custody since his arrest earlier this month on charges unrelated to the death of Christine Holloway and the disappearance of Vanessa Morales. Ansonia police now say he is their primary suspect.

Holloway was found beaten to death in her home on Dec. 2. Authorities have been searching since then for Vanessa.
