Man arrested for murder of his own child. Reported by Dianne Garrett.

Whitehall Police have arrested John. T. Streater and charged him with murder in the death of his two month old daughter, Jordyn Streater.

Jordyn was taken to Children's Hospital on October 30 with a skull fracture and brain damage. She died a short time later.

Jordyn's twin brother, Justin, was found to have suffered similar injuries, and is currently being treated at Children's. The father has also been charged with felonious assault for the injuries to Justin, according to Detective Steven E. Brown.

Streater and the twins' mother, Suprina Case, lived with their children at an apartment located at 22-A Fairway Boulevard.

Streater is not employed, and watches the children during the day while Case works outside the home. The criminal investigation showed that Jordan suffered fatal injury while in the care of her father,

This is the second murder in Whitehall this year.
