A former NFL football running back arrested in Las Vegas on suspicion of child abuse now faces murder charges after the 5-year-old girl died.

Wood, 28, was arrested early Wednesday at Summerlin Hospital in Las Vegas after La-Rayah Davis died there Tuesday night. An arrest report reveals she was taken to a hospital and found to have bruising to her torso, legs and abdomen. Wood and Amy Taylor, the girl's mother and Wood's girlfriend, had already been charged with child abuse/neglect.

Jail records showed that Wood was being held without bail. They are scheduled to appear in court Thursday morning. It was not immediately clear whether Talyor had been released on $5,000 bond. He had five carries for 12 yards playing at the National Football League level. He also tallied 52 catches for 384 yards and 2 touchdowns.

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. He was released by Montreal in May of past year.
