MANCHESTER, N.H. (WBZ NewsRadio) — The father of missing New Hampshire child Harmony Montgomery has been arrested in her murder.
New Hampshire Attorney General John Formella said Adam Montgomery repeatedly punched the young girl in the head on or around December 7, 2019, eventually killing her.
Adam Montgomery is facing three other charges: falsifying physical evidence, abuse of corpse, and tampering with witnesses.
Montgomery is facing the first two charges for allegedly hiding or destroying his daughter's body, and the last charge for allegedly trying to pressure Harmony's step-mother Kayla Montgomery not to testify or to testify falsely.
Manchester Police Chief Allen Aldenberg thanked his officers and the New Hampshire DA's office in emotional comments to the press.
He said the charges are "Of no solace to myself...they bring no solace to her family and friends."
"I ask that we all do something nice for a child today...I know of no other way to honor the memory of this defenseless child," Aldenberg said, blinking back tears.
Adam Montgomery is set to be arraigned in Hillsborough County Superior Court on Tuesday.
