On Friday, Connecticut police reportedly arrested a man who was wanted for the murder of his 11-month-old daughter.
According to CT Insider, Christopher Francisquini, 31, was apprehended near the state Superior Court in Waterbury. Additional details regarding his capture were not provided.
Francisquini is believed to have stabbed, choked, and dismembered his daughter, Camilla, at their home in Naugatuck on November 18. The baby was apparently killed before Francisquini and the baby’s mother argued, and he destroyed his cellphone and court-ordered GPS monitoring device.
The baby’s mother had returned to their shared home after the argument, which occurred in Waterbury. The nature of their argument was not disclosed.
According to WTIC, Francisquini fled in a family member’s car. A family member discovered the infant’s body in the home and called 911.
At the time of the slaying, Francisquini was on parole for a 2012 assault for which he served 10 years. Following his release from prison last year, he was arrested in November 2021 for a carjacking at a West Haven hospital.
A day after his carjacking arrest, he allegedly attacked corrections officers while trying to escape from custody.
According to reports, Francisquini was free on bonds totaling $375,000 and under GPS monitoring when he killed his infant daughter. He was released from jail in July.
At the time of his capture, the FBI offered a $25,000 reward for information resulting in his arrest.
