$2 million bond set for Texas man charged in child’s slaying

🕐 1 min read

ORANGE, Texas (AP) — Police say a Southeast Texas man who used a hammer to kill his 2-year-old daughter is being held on $2 million bond after being arraigned on a capital murder charge.

Orange police Capt. Robert Enmon says 26-year-old Yovahnis Roque (RAHK) was arraigned Wednesday. Roque was arrested Tuesday after the discovery of his slain daughter in their home. Enmon says she was killed in her bedroom with a hammer.

Enmon said it was the most horrific crime he’s dealt with in his 29-year career, calling it “the crime scene of nightmares.”

Roque remained jailed Wednesday. Jail records didn’t list an attorney for him.

Orange is on the Texas-Louisiana border about 30 miles from the Gulf of Mexico.
