21-year-old Deandrea Devon Davis-Williams was arrested late Tuesday night and charged with continuous sexual abuse of a child, according to The Associated Press. The Houston, Texas resident is accused of repeatedly raping an 11-year-old neighbor who became pregnant and gave birth to a healthy child on Thursday.
Court documents state the abuse occurred almost daily for more than seven months beginning last June. The girl’s mother was made aware of the attacks when she received a call from school officials who believed her daughter was pregnant. The woman then bought a pregnancy test for the child, prompting the victim to confess about the assaults.
A doctor later confirmed the pregnancy.
A criminal complaint shows the attacks began last summer and occurred “almost every day when no one was home.” They reportedly continued throughout the school year when the girl’s mother was working two jobs.
While Davis-Williams has denied any involvement, police have obtained copies of text messages in which he asked the girl “why she told on him and told her that he was going to kill himself.
Davis-Williams appeared in court Thursday where a judge tripled his original $50,000 bond and set arraignment for April 23.
