LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Former NFL football player Cierre Wood was arrested Tuesday night in Las Vegas on first-degree child abuse charges, police said.

Wood played for the Texans, Patriots, Bills and Seahawks after his college career at Notre Dame. He also played in the Canadian Football League.

Officers with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said he was arrested with his girlfriend, 25-year-old Amy Taylor, at Summerlin Hospital on April 10.

Metro Police said that Taylor’s daughter died Tuesday night at the hospital.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office confirmed the death of 5-year-old La'Ravah Davis at Summerlin Hospital that same night around 7:30 pm.

The pair were expected in court on Thursday morning.

Former NFL and Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood was arrested in Las Vegas on Wednesday in connection with the death of his girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter, authorities said.

Wood, 28, and Amy Taylor, 25, were both taken into custody at Summerlin Hospital after the child died there Tuesday night, Las Vegas Metro police said. Both were charged with first-degree child abuse.

Wood played in the NFL from 2013 to 2015, spending most of his career on practice squads with the Houston Texans, New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills. He saw just five carries in regular-season play.

He starred for Notre Dame from 2010 to 2013, accumulating 2,447 rushing yards and 16 touchdowns. He most recently played in the Canadian Football League, according to Yahoo Sports.

Wood and Taylor were held on $5,000 bond, according to Clark County jail records.

They were expected to appear in court on Thursday, FOX5 Las Vegas reported.

Former Notre Dame running back Cierre Wood is facing murder and child abuse charges after allegedly putting his girlfriend’s 5-year-old daughter through a grueling workout gone wrong, according to TMZ Sports.

Wood was arrested last Wednesday in Las Vegas, the morning after the girl, La-Rayah Davis, died, and appeared in court Tuesday as the grisly details of her death emerged.

Wood told police that Davis was “chunky,” according to KSNV in Las Vegas, so as punishment he made her run sprints in the apartment and do sit-ups and wall squats. The workouts went awry last Tuesday, when Davis could not finish a second round of sit-ups and fell backward, banging her head against the floor, TMZ reported. She got back up before collapsing.

Wood, who sputtered out of the NFL after brief stints with the Texans, Patriots, Seahawks and Bills, allegedly called the punishment “Learning through fun,” according to TMZ.

An autopsy showed Davis’ skull had multiple contusions, KSNV reported, in addition to multiple rib fractures, and “liver laceration was the probable cause of her demise.”

Davis’ mother, Amy Taylor, is also charged with murder and allegedly abused her daughter as well. Days before she died, Davis complained of chest pains after Taylor sat on her chest and stomach as punishment for bad behavior, per TMZ, which also reported Taylor admitted to having “popped” Davis the day she died.

“She can’t be there no more. I can’t call her no more,” the child’s father, Danaun Davis, told KSNV. “Never thought I’d bury my child at 5 years old.”
