A 23-year-old Michigan man, Donovan Lamar Haynes, has been handed a prison sentence of up to 40 years for the murder of his two-year-old daughter.
Haynes, who was charged with second-degree murder reportedly told the court that he beat his daughter to death because he wanted to make her gay, so she could be able to avoid dangerous men like himself when she grows up.
A medical examiner reported that the 2-year-old toddler was covered in bite marks and died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver.
The criminal’s lawyer says that his client is “deranged” and hopes that he will get psychological and counselling atonement in prison. He said, ”Hopefully judge, he will repent.”
Apparently unremorseful, as he was escorted into a Genesee County courtroom on Monday, he had an obvious smirk creased on his face.
