A Californian man is charged with sexually assaulting and killing his 19-day-old baby girl.
Initially, he had reported the newborn missing, but in less than 12 hours the 30-year-old dad was arrested as he led police to the place where his baby lay dead, reported latest.com.
Police discovered the body in his pick-up truck.
Only after closer examination of the body was it revealed that the baby was sexually assaulted, too. And his bail has been increased to over $2 million (Dh7.3m) and if convicted, he could face a life sentence.
While his mom does not believe her son could have done it, the suspect’s mother-in-law thinks otherwise. She claims that he was a “danger to the tiny girl as he would regularly ‘get high’ and was on probation for drug charges...”
