Zahra's stepmother, Elisa Baker, told investigators the child, who had lost her left leg in a battle with cancer, was dismembered after she was dead and her remains were disposed of in several different locations, ABC news reported.
"There's no way I would do that to my baby," Adam Baker told CBS News affiliate WBTV. "There's no way in the world I would hurt my daughter."
Elisa Baker is in jail on charges including obstruction of justice for allegedly admitted to writing a fake ransom note following her 10-year-old stepdaughter's disappearance.
In jailhouse letters, Elisa Baker said her husband, Adam, did something "horrifying" to Zahra after she was dead.
Those claims were nothing more than a "desperate" attempt at distraction, Adam Baker's attorney told ABC News.
Hundreds of people showed up last night in Hickory, N.C., for a vigil to remember and honor Zahra on what would have been her 11th birthday.
Baker told WBTV that he wanted to go but didn't want his presence to be a distraction.
He can't go anywhere without people yelling at him and accusing him of murder, Baker told WBTV.
