D’Andre Lane, the father of two-year-old Bianca Jones who went missing on Dec. 2, is accused by a prosecutor of killing her after beating her to death because she wet her pants, says the Bradenton Herald.
“He believed that if 2-year-olds had accidents they should be physically punished,” Wayne County Assistant Prosecutor Carin Goldfarb told jurors. “The defendant staged a carjacking to cover up the death of his baby.”
He is accused of beating Bianca to death with a stick with a towel wrapped in duct tape, but he only told officers that he spanked her for wetting herself. Lane is also charged with child abuse.
Another quick fact that is almost as startling: Lane is the father of seven children all from seven different women.
Defense attorney Terry Johnson said prosecutors have no evidence against Lane and their case is only based on the argument that he spanked her.
