A Maryland couple was arrested after their 10-week-old daughter passed away.
On Friday, 24-year-old Robert Alan Davidson was charged with second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse resulting in death, first-degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, neglect of a minor, and sexual abuse of a minor.
Police say Davidson admitted to repeatedly sexually abusing the child and shaking and dropping her.
On June 23, Davidson called 911 after 10-week-old Aleah stopped breathing.
The girl was rushed to the hospital and then transported to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital where she died three days later.
Medical examiners ruled the girl’s death a homicide caused by multiple blunt force injuries.
The girl’s mother, 22-year-old Lorena Thompson admitted that she saw the girl’s injuries but did not seek any medical attention.
Thompson was charged with first-degree child abuse resulting in death, first-degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, and neglect of a minor.
