Man, 26, accused of sex assault, killing of baby

Federal prosecutors have accused a northern Michigan man of killing his 3-month-old daughter while he was sexually assaulting her. Steven Deuman, 26, is charged with murdering his infant daughter while sexually assaulting her. He has a hearing scheduled for today in U.S. District Court in Grand Rapids. The case is federal because the Aug. 12 death happened on a reservation of the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians in Leelanau County, northwest of Traverse City. Records say Deuman, his wife and children live on the reservation.

An autopsy indicated that the baby was asphyxiated.

Phone and e-mail messages were left at the office of Deuman attorney Richard Stroba after business hours Tuesday.
