Police: Suspect Left 10-Month-Old Baby Inside Trunk, Stuffed Inside Backpack
LUBBOCK, TX — Trevor Rowe has been charged with capital murder after police say he caused the death of his girlfriend's 10-month-old baby.
According to KTXS, the arrest warrant states Rowe took the child to his job site and stuffed her into a backpack. He left the backpack on the floorboard of the vehicle. When he returned to check on her, she had gotten out of the backpack, so Rowe stuffed her back inside.
At lunchtime, he checked on her again and the baby was still breathing, but she was crying. Rowe then zipped up the backpack before leaving to go get fast food. After lunch, he moved the backpack that contained the baby into his trunk. The child was left in the trunk for more than five hours.
Just before 5:00 p.m. Rowe called the police and told them the baby wasn’t breathing. He told police he tried to perform CPR before paramedics arrived.
Rowe is being held on a $2 million bond.
