The prosecutor told the media, “This case is deeply disturbing. It is hard to imagine this child’s death being any more traumatic. Sexual assault on an infant is heinous and then followed by the inaction of her father to save her life all led to this child’s death."
According to prosecutors, officials responded to a 911 call placed by Stevens on Saturday night and found the 10-month-old unresponsive.
Police say that after killing the baby, Austin googled the phrase"How to know if a baby's dead."
Medical personnel said the baby had been wearing a blood-soaked diaper.
