GAINESVILLE, Texas (AP) — A North Texas man has been charged with capital murder after his 4-month-old daughter was found dead in a car overturned in the Red River after an Amber Alert was issued for her.

Lyrik Brown’s body was found still strapped into a safety seat in her father’s car, which was found about 4 p.m. Tuesday under the Interstate 35 bridge and in the river that forms the Texas-Oklahoma border near Gainesville. Her father, Jeremy Nathaniel Brown, 30, of Gainesville, was standing in the river next to the overturned car when authorities arrived.
A capital murder warrant was issued Wednesday for Brown, who remained in the Cooke County Detention Center in Gainesville without bond.


Brown’s girlfriend, who was the child’s mother, told Gainesville police Monday that she and Lyrik were riding in a car with Brown when she got into an argument and physical altercation with him. She said they stopped and got out of the car and continued the altercation when he returned to the car and drove away, the child still buckled in her car seat.
Jail records do not list an attorney who could speak on Brown’s behalf.
