US man rapes teen girl and baby, infects them with HIV

A US man raped his one-year-old niece and a 14-year-old teen, infecting them with HIV and herpes.

The dastardly crimes were only discovered when family members of the man spotted growth on the baby's genitals and took her to hospital last November, reported ABC 13.

The baby tested positive for HIV, herpes and chlamydia, and doctors had to perform reconstructive surgery on her.

Not involved in the baby's life

Police tested four family members living with the baby for sexually transmitted diseases, and only one person came up positive: David Richard Wilson, 33.

The baby is the child of Wilson's sister. The baby's parents live in a different US state and are not involved in the baby's life, reported Chron.

Wilson also had sex with his ex-girlfriend's teenage daughter, infecting her with HIV and herpes.

The Houston man was charged in court on Wednesday.

Wilson was previously jailed for four years in 2005 for sexually assaulting another teenager, reported Click2Houston.com.
