(Memphis) An East Memphis man is accused of raping a 3-year-old girl and recording it on his phone.

Forty-five-year-old Khamprason Keophila is charged with aggravated rape of a child.

Police said it happened at Keophila's home in August.

Investigators said the child's mother found the video weeks later and turned it in to police.

"I almost had a heart attack, because I don't believe it," said his girlfriend, Khampouvo Keophila.

She said she never saw any signs and never saw the video.

Khampouvo Keophila said her boyfriend is a beloved grandfather of two and a hard worker. She said he calls every day from jail confused on why he's behind bars.

Prosecutors are gathering evidence until his case heads to a grand jury.

"I'm not sure he did it. I'm not sure," said Khampouvo.

Khamprason Keophila is behind bars on a $1 million bond. He could face up to 30 years in jail if he's found guilty.

    The mother turns in the phone showing the video of this pervert raping her 3 year old and yet in this article the mother says she’s not sure he did it!!! Really??? To me someone needs to step in and take the child from the mother cause she’s up holding this fool. And he call’s her everyday confused on why he’s in jail but he wasn’t confused when he was raping and RECORDING his video but now he’s confused really??

    Carol, the article says that his girlfriend said all this and that she’s never seen the video. It doesn’t say that the girlfriend is the mother of the child.
