A 2-year-old girl police say was raped and assaulted last week died Wednesday at the Kentucky Children's Hospital.
Brian Matthew Crabtree is being held in the Fayette County Detention Center on charges of first-degree rape, first-degree sexual abuse and first-degree assault. He has pleaded not guilty.
The Fayette County coroner's report said the child, Katelynn Stinnett, was assaulted on Nov. 25 in a home at 2034 Cumins Court off Versailles Road. An autopsy is pending, and the death is being investigated as a homicide. According to court documents, police said Crabtree, roommate to the girl's father, raped the child and dropped her to the floor.
The Ellison Funeral Home in Williamsburg is in charge of funeral arrangements.
