The State of Oklahoma will seek the death penalty against a man accused of raping and murdering a toddler in Enid.

Michael Geiger is charged with rape, kidnapping and murder.

Geiger is accused of taking a girl at an Enid motel in April.

Guyton and members of the 2 year old girl’s family were staying at the Grand Prairie Motel in Enid.

Motel staff called 911 at 1:47 a.m. after she was discovered floating in the motel’s indoor pool.

CPR was performed at the scene and the child was transported to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, with signs of sexual trauma to her body.

The Garfield County District Attorney’s Office amended the petition on Wednesday that no longer includes a burglary charge against Geiger.

Geiger waved his right to a preliminary hearing and will be arraigned next month.
