Killed toddler with hammer

A police affidavit says a Southeast Texas man found naked and stained with blood told officers that he killed his two-year-old daughter, who had been bludgeoned with a hammer .

The affidavit says an officer's body camera captured 26-year-old Yovahnis Roque confessing Tuesday in the death of his child in a home in Orange, near the Louisiana border.

Police say her body was found in a closet.

In court Wednesday, a judge was explaining the capital murder charge against Roque when the suspect blurted out: "The government made me do it."

Roque and the baby lived with Roque's mother, who found the body.

Roque previously lived in Florida. WTVJ-TV in Miami-Dade County reports the child was weeks old when her mother was struck and killed by an impaired driver.
