A 22-year-old U.S. Army combat medic has been charged with aggravated child rape and homicide after police found his nine-month-old daughter strangled to death and raped after responding to a call in their Tennessee neighborhood, authorities said, according to the Leaf-Chronicle.
Christopher Paul Conway, 22, a U.S. Army medic stationed at Fort Campbell, on the Kentucky-Tennessee border, was arrested Wednesday in connection with the death of one of his nine-month-old twin daughters.
Police responded to a call around 7:19 a.m. on Tuesday to help a family giving CPR to the child, the Leaf-Chronicle reported. The child was taken to a hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Detectives said the child had been sexually assaulted and a cord was wrapped around her neck, which caused her death.
The other twin daughter was removed from the home and is currently in foster care, the Leaf-Chronicle reported.
According to arrest warrants, Conway confessed to raping and murdering his daughter in an interview with police.
Conway is being held at Montgomery County Jail where his bond is set at $100,000 for the rape charge.
