Babysitter accused of killing toddler — A Southern Oregon man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of killing a 2-year-old girl while babysitting her early this month, deputies say. Russel Brian Darrell Larsen, 25, is accused of first-degree manslaughter, assault and criminal mistreatment, according to jail records. Alivia Rose Allen, the daughter of Larsen’s romantic partner, died of blunt force trauma. The Jackson County Sheriff’s Office said authorities were sent Aug. 5 to the girl’s Eagle Point home after her mother called 911 to report she wasn’t breathing.
