A man, Benjamin Taylor, has reportedly raped his girlfriend’s 10-month-old baby, Emmaleigh Barringer, to death. The incident was said to have happened on Monday morning in West Virginia, United States. Findings say Taylor had seized the baby and taken her to the basement before he sexually assaulted her. The mother of the child, Amanda Adkins had found the baby covered in blood in the basement. Police found blood on a blanket and some clothes on the scene of the crime.
Taylor was arrested and charged with first degree sexual assault but his charges will now be upgraded to murder as the baby died this morning after being declared brain dead. The suspect, who is not the baby’s dad, is being held in jail on a $2million bond pending the conclusion of investigation.
