A police officer who last worked in the Reston District Station and was charged in connection with the death of his six-month-old daughter was fired on Friday (Sept. 28).

Fairfax County Police Chief Edwin Roessler Jr. fired Jason Colley, 38, following his arrest in Maryland in connection with the baby’s death, according to the Fairfax County Police Department.

He was charged with child abuse in the first degree resulting in death, child abuse in the first degree resulting in severe physical injury and felony assault in the first degree. The baby died on in October last year.

Roessler Jr. called the charges against Colley “abhorrent.” No other information was released by the police department about the incident.

Colley was relieved of all law enforcement powers on April 20 when Fairfax County police learned he was a suspect in the care.
