Appearing at a pre trial hearing on Tuesday at Montgomery County Court, Christopher Paul Conway a Clarksville, Tennessee Army medic confessed to strangling one of his two nine month old baby twin daughters in a bid to keep from her crying as the father sexually assaulted the child.
The father’s response comes after he was charged with the death of his nine month old baby daughter, Adaline Conway.
Upon his arrest, the father confessed to tying a cord around the child’s neck to ‘keep her from crying’ reported the Leaf Chronicle.
The rape and murder charges against the army combat father come after Clarksville Police were called to Conway’s family residence, November 14, just on 7.19am in response to a CPR in progress. From there the child was rushed to hospital.
The child was pronounced dead at 8am with police Sgt. Timothy Finley remarking noticing a marking around the baby girl’s neck told the official in court. An attending nurse pointed out further signs of abuse.
Conway who was in the waiting room was questioned initially denied any knowledge of how Adaline died, with the army combat medic emphatic that his wife was not involved reported the Leaf Chronicle.
