The FBI has arrested a father accused of murdering his 3-month-old daughter, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation in Atlanta.
Charles Hamilton, 44, was wanted by Gwinnett County Police on several warrants related to the murder of Adriana Hamilton.
Hamilton was arrested after arriving in Atlanta at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on a Delta flight returning from the Dominican Republic, according to the FBI.
Tuesday, police found Hamilton's GMC Yukon at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport. Police said they aren't sure when the vehicle was abandoned.
Hamilton will be returned to Gwinnett County where he will face charges of murder, cruelty to children, and aggravated assault.
Adriana Hamilton died after suffering significant head trauma. On September 9, Gwinnett County firefighters transported the little girl to Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Scottish Rite, where hospital staff noticed her severe injuries.
Investigators said Hamilton was watching his daughter the day she was admitted to the hospital while the baby's mother cleaned clothes at a laundromat.
According to police, the baby had fractured ribs and her brain was bleeding. She passed away on September 13.More
