YAKIMA, Wash. (AP) — Washington health officials are investigating several instances of a rare and fatal birth defect in Yakima County last year. It occurs when the baby's brain doesn't develop as it should during the first month of pregnancy. The Washington state Department of Health expects one case among the roughly 4,000 births in the county each year. There were eight cases reported in 2012.
