Former running back Cierre Wood was arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of child abuse and now faces a murder charge after the 5-year-old girl died.

The child died in a Las Vegas hospital Tuesday night, prompting police to investigate, according to ABC 57.

Wood and his girlfriend were arrested in connection with the death of a 5-year-old girl, according to a tweet from KVVU anchor and reporter Christopher Redfearn.

Police took Wood into custody Wednesday, KVVU reported.

Its elite force, Saiqa (Lightning), numbers some 3,500, while Haftar's sons also have well-equipped troops, LNA sources say. Allied groups from Misrata down the coast have been moving pickup trucks fitted with machine guns into Tripoli.

Taylor, 25, was also held on a $5,000 bond on a charge of child abuse and neglect. He had stints with the Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills, seeing only limited time during the regular season.

Wood starred at Notre Dame from 2010-2013, where he tallied 2,447 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. Woods saw just five carries in regular-season action as he spent much of his time in the National Football League on practice squads.

Wood is scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning. His last couple of seasons in professional football have been spent north of the border in the Canadian Football League, where he was now a free agent.
