AN army medic who admitted kiling and raping a baby twin daugther to death has been jailed.
Paul Conway, 25, from Tennessee, confessed to cops that he had strangled the nine-month-old infant with a cord after abusing her.
Arrest warrants stated the Fort Campbell medic came clean about what he had done during a police interview, The Leaf-Chronicle reported.
Cops arrived at Conway’s home around 7am on November 14, 2017after a 911 caller told them they were performing CPR on the child.
But the little girl was pronounced dead about 40 minutes later.
Conway reportedly gave a statement to police admitting to the rape and murder of Adeline, although later recanted the confession.
During the investigation of the case, detectives determined the 9-month-old girl had been sexually assaulted and that a cord was wrapped around her neck, causing her death, reported Clarksville Now.
Conway was charged with aggravated rape of a child, two counts of first-degree murder in perpetration of a felony, and aggravated child abuse and neglect in early 2018.
The killer dad had been set for a bench trial in November, but he pleaded guilty to second-degree murder today as part of a “no contest” agreement.
He will serve 15 years in prison with no opportunity for parole.
According to Kimberly Lund, the assistant district attorney prosecuting the case, the victim’s family was in agreement with the plea.
Ms Lund said: “This has been a very difficult case for all parties involved.
“There will never be a sentence harsh enough to ease the death of a child.
“Adeline was a beautiful baby whose life was taken far too soon. I hope her sister and family can find peace now that this case has been resolved.”
