Former NFL player Cierre Wood and his girlfriend Amy Taylor were indicted on murder charges and 20 felony child abuse charges.  The charges are connected to the death of Taylor’s 5-year-old daughter.

Via USA TODAY Sports:

Former NFL and Canadian Football League running back Cierre Marcelle Wood, 28, and Amy Taylor, 26, are accused of killing Taylor’s daughter, La’Rayah Davis, who was found lifeless on April 9 in Wood’s apartment.

Taylor and her daughter had moved in with Wood and his young daughter less than two weeks earlier.

A judge who heard evidence last month against Wood said it was clear that La’Rayah suffered before she died and that Wood and Taylor were responsible for her death.

It seems like an open and shut case.  The evidence must be overwhelming.  Obviously the worst part is a small child lost their life.
