Former Army medic sexually assaults infant daughter: Christopher Paul Conway Biography, Wiki
Christopher Paul Conway is a former Army medic who has been sentenced to 15 years in prison for raping his infant daughter and then killing her by wrapping a cord around her neck, Clarksville Now reports.
Christopher Paul Conway, 25, pleaded guilty to second-degree murder on Friday as part of a deal to avoid a trial. Conway initially had been charged with two counts of first-degree murder, aggravated rape of a child, and aggravated child abuse and neglect.
The case dates back to November 14, 2017, when one of Conway’s twin daughters, Adeline, was found early in the morning by her mother with a dehumidifying cord wrapped around her neck and arm.
Conway had reported working at 4:30 a.m. that morning at Fort Campbell in Kentucky, where he was an Army medic. His wife came to attend to their twins around 7 a.m. to feed them when he found the girl.
Conway confessed to police that he raped and murdered the 9-month-old girl and then tried to retract the confession.
A website claiming Conway’s innocence claimed that the girl “had the dehumidifier cord wrapped around her arm and neck overnight” and that the girl’s “motor skills were developing. . . and she had just started crawling and grabbing things. ”
But investigators determined that the girl had been sexually assaulted and that the cord around her neck killed her.
Other family members agreed to the plea agreement, Assistant District Attorney Kimberly Lund told Clarksville Now.
“This has been a very difficult case for all parties involved,” Lund told Clarksville Now.
“There will never be a sentence harsh enough to alleviate the death of a child. Adeline was a beautiful baby who was killed too soon. I hope her sister and family can find peace now that this case has been resolved. ”
A bench trial in the case had been scheduled to begin later this month. Conway’s prison sentence excludes the possibility of parole.
