EL PASO, TX - El Paso police have charged a Fort Bliss soldier with capital murder after they say he beat his 2-year-old daughter to death because she soiled her diaper.

Police Det. Mike Baranyay says 20-year-old Dartarious Graham was arrested Sunday.

He says the U.S. Army specialist beat his daughter, Peyton Graham, with a belt Saturday. When firefighters were called to the home, they found her unresponsive. She was taken to an area hospital where she later died.

The child's mother and the father's cousin also were charged with injury to a child by omission.

Graham is being held at the El Paso jail on $250,000 bond. Online jail records didn't indicate an attorney.
