The father of 9-month-old girl who's been missing for about a month has been charged with capital murder in her disappearance. Dallas police Senior Cpl. Janice Crowther said Thursday that Denton County prosecutors filed the charge against 20-year-old Alandus Weaver.

Daisja Weaver has been missing since early last month after her 19-year-old mother, Tamaira Creagh, said a man broke into her apartment and kidnapped the baby.

Police eventually arrested Creagh on an evidence tampering charge, and she told police they dumped the child's body into Lake Lewisville with a sandbag tied to it after she died while in her father's care.The father, 20-year-old Alandus Weaver, was arrested on suspicion of tampering or fabricating evidence to hinder an investigation.

The search of the lake for the child's body has been abandoned.
