GAINESVILLE, Texas (KDAF/AP) -- The father of a 4-month-old Texas girl who was found dead Tuesday in a submerged car has been charged with capital murder.
Authorities discovered the body of Lyrik Aliyana Brown, who was the subject of an AMBER Alert, still in her car seat in an overturned vehicle submerged in the Red River.
Officers arrested Jeremy Nathan Brown, 30, who was standing in the river next to the overturned vehicle, according to the Gainesville Police Dept. Brown had a warrant out for his arrest earlier in the day.
Brown is accused of abducting Lyrik after getting into an argument with his girlfriend, Lyrik’s mother, KTVT reports. Brown’s girlfriend reportedly told police Monday that the two got into a physical altercation during the argument and he drove away with the child still buckled into her seat in the back.
