D.C. Police Arrests Man For The Killing Of His Daughter Last Year

McIntyre was charged with first-degree murder and the death of his 17-year-old, Ebony Franklin. The teen's body was found in the trash container last year in Washington’s Columbia Height's neighborhood.

Police chief Cathy Lanier says investigators were led to their clues through a combination of forensic and electronic evidence gathered since November. Shortly after the investigation began, McIntyre quickly criticized the investigation charging harassment by police.

Chief Lanier says the evidence suggests the possibility of a sexual relationship between McIntyre and his daughter. But she declined to give a motive in the teen's death.
