Tampa, Florida--A man who was taking care of a three-year-old little girl was accused Friday night of raping and killing her.
Elissamuel Pacheco was arrested Friday, Hillsborough County Sheriff's Officials say, after the toddler he was caring for all week was vomiting and appeared to be tired.
The symptoms lead the little girl's mother to believe she had a virus.
However, the child's mother took her to the hospital after she was found unresponsive Thursday evening, and she was later pronounced dead.
Authorities say the medical examiner discovered signs she had been sexually battered, and also had internal injuries.
Pacheco has been charged with first degree murder, in addition to capital sexual battery and aggravated child abuse.
Pacheco had also been watching the girl's twin, nine-month-old brothers.
