Muldrow police announced Tuesday that the investigation into an alleged rape, of a nine-month-old girl, has been turned over to the Sequoyah County District Attorney's office in Sallisaw, and formal charges are expected. It was reported that Nathan Byrd, 27, of Muldrow may be arraigned in district court on Wednesday. Byrd is accused of first-degree rape after a medical facility in Van Buren determined the child was suffering from physical and sexual abuse. After preliminary examinations, Byrd, the child's father, was arrested June 5 and booked on a first-degree rape charge. The following day a complete examination was done of the infant, and it was revealed she had a broken arm from about two weeks earlier and a skull fracture. The child was transported to Children's Hospital in Little Rock. She was released June 9, Muldrow police reported. Stay tuned to KXMX or visit www.kxmx.com for the latest news.
