A Texas man has been charged with sexual assault and murder of his 9-month-old daughter.
Harris County Sheriff’s Bureau arrested 23-year-old Louis Luna.
Representatives said they responded to a report about an unresponsive 9-month-old infant in a Houston apartment complex, last week.
The baby was taken to hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
Investigators later performed an autopsy and determined that the girl had been sexually assaulted and died of suffocation during the assault.
The investigators met Luna, the girl’s father, and determined that he was behind her death.
Luna is now facing murder charges.
