Father rapes 10 months old daughter
The CPR began immediately on little Zara. Police transported her to Einstein Medical Centre. She fought her battle for two hours before leaving the cruel world.
Police obtained the search warrant to download the content of Steven’s phone. He conducted a couple of hours of google search for helping his dying daughter before calling the police.
The prosecutors said that the search term was, ‘If the baby stops breathing,’ ‘What if you don’t hear baby heart or beat,’ ‘My baby isn’t breathing,’ and ‘How do you know if a baby is dead,’ among others.
Steven reportedly exchanged social media messages with two women but did not mention the daughter’s condition.
The diaper Zara was wearing during the sexual assault was found in his apartment. It was full of blood.
The autopsy report confirmed that the baby girl had anal rectal trauma and blunt force trauma on the head, Daily Mail Reported.
Kevin Steele, Montgomery County District Attorney said,
‘This case is deeply disturbing. It is hard to imagine this child’s death being any more traumatic: sexual assault on an infant, followed by inaction by the father to save her life, led to her death,’
He is held with $1mn bail in the county jail.
The ruthless father is the co-owner of a construction company assistant coach for the Lower Providence Warriors Youth Football team.
Reports confirm that Stevens had joint custody with Zara’s mother. The maternal grandparents of Zara placed her in Steven’s car for an overnight visit.
