A father accused of beating his newborn daughter to death in January is now behind bars, Houston police say.
The baby girl, Yeimy Lizcano, was barely two weeks old when police say her father – 21-year-old Adrian Lizcano – violently and fatally beat him shortly after midnight Jan. 30 inside his home in north Houston. He was arrested Thursday after a judge signed off on a murder warrant, records show.
Lizcano lived with his wife, Yeimy and their other two-year-old daughter, police said. Yeimy’s grandmother and the grandmother’s boyfriend also lived in the household.
