A wanted man accused of killing his 11-month-old daughter last month in a “heinous” manner was apprehended on Friday, according to Connecticut police.
After his daughter’s dismembered remains were discovered in the family’s Naugatuck home on November 18, authorities obtained an arrest warrant for Christopher Francisquini, 31, charging him with murder with special circumstances and risk of injury to a minor.
According to Naugatuck Police Chief Colin McAllister, he was apprehended without incident on Friday after a tipster spotted him at a bus stop in nearby Waterbury around 3 p.m.
According to McAllister, Francisquini will appear in Waterbury Superior Court on Monday morning while being held under a $5 million bond.
According to McAllister, Francisquini has a long history and is well known to the authorities.

Francisquini’s lawyer cannot be found, according to CNN.
The heinous nature of the crime that was committed against baby Camilla will ensure that none of the officers involved in the killing will ever forget it, according to McAllister.
Nothing can lessen the suffering that the family is going through, but he hoped that they could find some comfort in the fact that the violent offender had been apprehended and was now off the streets.
According to the police, they don’t know where Francisquini was for two weeks or if he got any help.
If it turns out that someone was supporting him or helping him, we can’t rule out the possibility of more arrests, McAllister said.
The FBI initially offered a $10,000 reward, but this week increased it to $25,000, according to the FBI.
