Hurst man arrested in death of 3-year-old daughter

HURST, (AP) — A 27-year-old North Texas man has been arrested in the death of his 3-year-old daughter.

Hurst police say Robert Marquis Lamar Williams was arrested Tuesday on a murder-serious bodily injury charge in the death of Anastasia Williams, found dead March 22 in her bedroom. Robert Williams remained jailed Wednesday on $100,000 bond. Jail records did not list an attorney.

The Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports an arrest affidavit says the day before she was found dead, Anastasia was crying in her room when her father went in, slamming the door. A witness told police he heard thumps and thuds for 30 to 45 seconds.

The medical examiner ruled her death a homicide, caused by an injury to her abdomen that lacerated her liver.

The affidavit says Williams denied killing her.
