A former police officer with the Fairfax County (VA) Police Department turned himself into Maryland police and was charged with multiple counts of child abuse in the death of his six-month-old daughter, Harper in October 2017.

According to Fox News, Jason Colley faces charges of first degree child abuse, first degree child abuse resulting in death and child abuse in the first degree resulting in severe physical injury. Colley was also charged with first degree assault, according to an online statement from the Frederick County State’s Attorney Office.

Andrew Jezic—Colley’s attorney—told the Washington Post that his client plans to plead not guilty and he and other lawyers will “vociferously assert his innocence.”

“He’s been a police officer in good standing. He’s had no discipline issues on the job. He’s someone that appears to be widely supported by his colleagues on the force, and he has no record,” Jezic added.

Trail dates have not yet been set.
