He told the baby’s mum that she was not breathing after she woke up at 9am, which prompted her to dial 911.

During initial questioning, Buchanan is said to have originally claimed that he was woken up by the baby at 5:30am, and that he gave her a bottle before putting her back to sleep.

He claimed he woke up later on to find the child not breathing, cut the head off an extension cord and then used its electrical current to try and shock her back to life.
