Police arrested a Tennessee man Wednesday in connection with the rape and murder of one of his infant twin daughters. Authorities removed the man's other twin daughter from the home. She's now in foster care, the Leaf-Chronicle reported.

Christopher Paul Conway, a U.S. Army medic stationed at Fort Campbell, is charged with aggravated child rape and homicide.

What's the story?

According to the Leaf-Chronicle, at about 7:20 a.m. Tuesday, Clarksville Police responded to a 911 call asking for help in giving CPR to a child.

When first responders arrived at the caller's home, they found a 9-month-old girl whose injuries were consistent with rape and strangulation.

The baby was taken to the hospital where she was pronounced dead.

"We discovered the child had been sexually assaulted, and a cord had been placed around the child's neck and the child died from those injuries," Clarksville Police Department spokesman Jim Knoll told WZTV-TV.

Conway, 22, is jailed in Montgomery County. He confessed to the alleged crimes during police interviews, the Leaf-Chronicle reported.

Conway's bond is set at $100,000 for the rape charge. The judge denied bond for the homicide charge.

The suspect is married. Neighbors told WZTV that the family moved into the neighborhood a few months ago.
