Father arrested for raping 3-weeks-old baby to death

An insane father has been charged to court with raping to death his 3-weeks-old baby girl.

A 30-year-old man from Souther Carolina, USA, Matthew Brendan Warner, has been arrested and charged to court for raping his 19-day-old baby girl, after which he allegedly dumped her body in an abandoned pickup, the NBC4 News reports.

The body of the infant was found in the cab of a pickup truck where the father dumped her.

Prosecutors say Warner showed no emotion during a court hearing where he was charged with one count each of 'murder, assault on a child causing death, torture, oral copulation or sexual penetration with a child 10 years or younger and aggravated sexual assault of a child.'

Police say Warner and his wife reported that their infant daughter, Ellorah Rose Warner, had disappeared from their home in Newhall but about 12 hours later, he was arrested him after he led them to her body inside a parked pickup truck.

Though his relatives claim Warner adored his daughter and could not commit such atrocities against her, the coroner's report has been kept sealed while he is being prosecuted for the heinous crimes and could face a lifetime in jail if found guilty.

The Judge, David Walgren increased Warner bail to more than $2 million while his arraignment was set for 18 February, 2015.
