A Tennessee man was charged in the death of his infant daughter, officials said.
Christopher Paul Conway, 22, was arrested on assault and murder charges on Wednesday after his 9-month-old daughter was found dead, the Clarksville Police Department said in a statement, according to Fox17.
Police said they found a cord around the girl’s neck, saying it was the cause of death. She was later taken to a hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
An investigation into the death led to the arrest of Conway, who is being held Montgomery County Jail on a $100,000 bond. He was arrested around 4:20 a.m. Wednesday, Newschannel5 reported.
According to Conway’s Facebook, he’s a U.S. Army combat medic from Grand Bay, Ala., and a married dad to twin girls, the Leaf Chronicle reported.
Judge Ray Grimes said that it could potentially be a death penalty case.
Clarksville police spokesperson Jim Knoll said of the crime: “There is no motive for something like this,” according to the Daily Mail.
Conway and his wife, Emily, were married for three years.
It’s unclear if he has an attorney. An investigation is ongoing.
