A Michigan father was sentenced this week in the fatal beating of his 2 year-old daughter. Donovan Lamar Haynes, 23, says he beat his Ti’Airra Woodward because he wanted to turn her gay so she would avoid dangerous men like him. Wow…
According to The New York Daily News, Haynes wanted to make his young daughter tough, so he beat her to death.
“Dad took care of that. He took care of it in one fell swoop,” Judge Joseph J. Farah said. At one point, Haynes tried to withdraw his guilty plea, but Farah refused.
The little girl died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver, and had bite marks all over her body.
Haynes’ own defense attorney described him as “deranged” and said hopefully “he will repent” in jail.
The sick father was sentenced to 18-40 years in prison for second degree murder. He reportedly feels no remorse for his crime.
