An ex-NFL and Notre Dame running back arrested on suspicion of child abuse now faces murder charges after his girlfriend's 5-year-old girl died.

On Wednesday, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police arrested 28-year-old Cierre Wood and his girlfriend 26-year-old Amy Taylor in connection with the death of his girlfriend's 5-year-old daughter.

Wood and Taylor were held on $5,000 bond.

The girl was found unresponsive Tuesday night, according to police, who said she had bruises on her legs, torso and abdomen when she was examined by doctors after being transported to the hospital (via KSNV). Wood and Taylor are scheduled in court Thursday morning for a hearing regarding first-degree child abuse charges, per Melissa Hudson of ABC 57.
