MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee County Medical Examiner's Office identified an infant who died in what investigators determined was an accidental co-sleeping incident.

Josziah Ezechial-Willie Alexander, 7 months, was found unresponsive after sleeping an adult bed with both parents early Friday morning.  No trauma or injury was noted on the boy's body, and the Medical Examiner's Office ruled the death accidental.
