Soldier ‘beat his 8-month-old daughter to DEATH’ because she wouldn’t stop crying


A U.S. soldier allegedly beat his eight-month-old daughter to death because she would not stop screaming. 


Sgt Gabriel Ceville, with the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Liberty in North Carolina, is accused of causing fatal head injuries to his daughter, Misty Delatorre, in February 2023. 

Misty suffered severe brain and eye injuries and hemorrhages that were likened those of a car crash victim.

A Cumberland County judge had given 50/50 custody to both parents only two weeks before Misty died.

The child’s death was ruled a homicide by the North Carolina Medical Examiner, but no one was charged with the crimes at the time.


Misty’s mother and grandmother pushed for justice, and it was not until May 2024 that Ceville was charged in his daughter’s death.

‘I just want justice. I did,’ her grandma, Misty Bray said. ‘I just want my grandbaby’s death – someone needs to be held accountable.’

Ceville has since been charged with involuntary manslaughter and unpremeditated murder in Misty’s death. 

He also faces a domestic violence charge for a parental discipline incident separate from the death. 

He appeared in court or his preliminary hearing on Thursday, May 23.
