HURST (April 10, 2013)—Robert Marquis Lamar Williams, 27, was in custody Wednesday, charged in the death of his 3-year-old daughter.
Williams was charged with murder-serious bodily injury in the death of Anastasia Williams.
She was found dead on March 22 in her bedroom.
Williams remained jailed Wednesday in lieu of $100,000 bond.
An arrest warrant affidavit says the day before the girl was found dead, Anastasia was crying in her room.
Her father went into the bedroom and slammed the door, the affidavit said.
A witness told police he heard thumps and thuds for 30 to 45 seconds, the affidavit said.
The medical examiner ruled her death a homicide, caused by an injury to her abdomen that lacerated her liver.
Williams denied killing her, the affidavit said.
