LAFOLLETTE, Tenn. -

A Campbell County man added to the state’s “Most Wanted” list has been arrested for the murder of his girlfriend’s three-year-old daughter.

Joshua Comer is accused of killing the toddler earlier this month, on June 10. He has since been indicted for first degree murder.

Comer, 33, fled his residence on Whiteman Hollow Road in LaFollette, Tennessee when deputies of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Department attempted to take him into custody.

The child’s mother is also in custody for aggravated child abuse.

Comer, who has a criminal history of theft, domestic violence and evading arrest, was captured Wednesday afternoon.

An autopsy on Gabriella Orton revealed several signs of serious physical abuse.
