BLOUNTVILLE — A Kingsport man has pleaded guilty to raping his 6-month-old daughter in 2012, along with abuse that left her with a fractured skull.

The Sullivan County District Attorney's Office reports the victim is currently living in a foster home where she is deeply loved and cared for.

Shawn Lee Wray, 29, appeared Monday in Sullivan County court in Blountville, pleading guilty to aggravated child abuse, aggravated sexual battery and violations of the sex offender registry.

He was previously convicted on a charge of aggravated sexual assault on a 13-year-old in Texas in 2006, but staying at a Kingsport residence with his daughter, girlfriend and other children at the time of the 2012 incident.
