The affidavit was unsealed by a judge and Law&Crime obtained it from a court clerk on Tuesday. Kayla Montgomery previously lied to police about Harmony Montgomery’s whereabouts and later said her husband forced her to repeat those lies before a grand jury about the circumstances surrounding the death and disappearance of her stepdaughter.

She was charged with two counts of perjury for those lies. She initially pleaded not guilty, but later accepted a plea deal, admitting her legal guilt and agreeing to testify against her estranged husband in exchange for a reduced sentence and dismissal of other charges against her. her.


Kayla Montgomery was convicted of those perjury charges earlier this month after testifying against Adam Montgomery during his trial on gun theft charges, for which she was convicted. Adam Montgomery’s anger toward his own daughter culminated on Dec. 7, 2019, Kayla Montgomery told investigators. That day, “Adam hit Harmony in the face/head on three separate occasions because she was in a bathroom accident,” the affidavit reads.

“This happened while Adam was driving the vehicle; Kayla described Harmony being in the back passenger side seat, and as Adam drove, he turned his body and delivered series of three or four closed-fisted blows to Harmony’s face/head on three separate occasions over the course of a few minutes,” the affidavit continues. “Kayla stated that after the final blow, Adam said words to the effect that he felt something or heard something when he hit Harmony.”

“I think I really hurt her this time,” Adam Montgomery allegedly said after the attack, her wife recalled. “I think I did something.” Kayla Montgomery eventually told police that Harmony Montgomery made a “groaning type noise” for about five minutes before the sounds of the dying child finally stopped. However, during this time, Kayla Montgomery said, no one in the car checked on the injured girl or sought any type of medical attention.


After the violence, Kayla Montgomery told investigators, the family returned to the apartment complex parking lot where they had always been parking their car, a Chrysler Sebring, since they were evicted. There, they sat for about 20 minutes, the affidavit says; again, no one checked on the girl.

After pulling out of the apartment’s parking lot, the car broke down mid-morning; That’s when the couple “discovered that Harmony was not breathing and had passed away,” according to the document.

“Kayla testified that Adam went to the trunk of the vehicle, removed the clothing from a black and red Under Armor duffel bag, and placed Harmony’s lifeless body in the bag,” the affidavit reads. “Kayla said that at no point did either of us have a conversation about getting some kind of salvage measures for Harmony, and that Adam simply put Harmony’s body in the bag and carried it back to the Colonial Village Apartments parking lot. ”.

According to Kayla Montgomery, her husband kept Harmony Montgomery’s body in the duffel bag and moved it around for several months. Immediately after her death, Kayla Montgomery told investigators that her husband occasionally kept her daughter’s body outside her in the snow to slow the decomposition process.


After living in a friend’s car, the Montgomerys moved in with Kayla Montgomery’s mother, where they left Harmony Montgomery’s body inside a red cooler until late December 2019.

There, Kayla Montgomery said, the duffel bag containing the girl’s body began to leak and emit an odor, so Adam Montgomery put it in a garbage bag before hiding it inside a vent in the roof of the house. your room.

Detectives would later remove the entire section of the roof, along with the vent, and find spots indicative of decay. In February 2020, the Montgomerys moved into an apartment. Harmony Montgomery’s body was allegedly moved again at this time, although the details of the next movements of her body are described in two different ways in the affidavit.

First, the girl’s body was placed in a plastic container, Kayla Montgomery told investigators. Then, when the bag started to leak, it was placed in a second garbage bag and moved to the fridge. Later, she told investigators, the girl’s body was transferred to a much smaller carry-on bag. The affidavit notes that the second bag “probably would not fit Harmony’s body unless dismembered or severely distorted.”


Eventually, that tote bag was stored in the refrigerator of a restaurant where Adam Montgomery worked as a dishwasher and cook, the affidavit says. Other employees at the restaurant later told police they saw the bag in the freezer, knew it belonged to the alleged killer, but never thought to ask him about it or look inside because of the label on the bag, affiliated with a Catholic maternity hospital. , suggested that the content was related to the children of Adam Montgomery.

In a second interview, Kayla Montgomery admitted that the girl’s body was actually moved into the shelter’s smallest bag. She told police in graphic and macabre terms how Adam Montgomery used some 20 pounds of lime to try to dissolve part of his daughter’s frozen body while “crushing” her flesh, and how he helped cut the girl’s clothing so that the body would fit inside. tote bag

Harmony was not bones; it had skin, teeth and hair, and Kayla could still tell it was her,” the affidavit reads. “Kayla described Adam finally shoving and shoving Harmony’s body, and then she heard a thud; she was unable to elaborate on what this explosion was. Adam also slammed the [Catholic Medical Center] maternity bag on the floor as he was closing it.” Eventually, Kayla Montgomery said, her husband rented a U-Haul truck to dispose of Harmony Montgomery’s body.
