Father imprisoned for fatally beating his 2-day-old baby; his secret is revealed and gets prison justice

Parental child abuse refers to when a parent or guardian uses physical, emotional or psychological abuse or neglect against a child. The abuse can have long-term negative effects on a child’s physical and mental health and can lead to a range of issues such as anxiety, depression and difficulty forming healthy relationships.

A father who was serving a sentence for killing his daughter was found dead in a prison cell just months after being imprisoned. The man, Liam, was allegedly killed by prisoner John, who appeared in court following the discovery of Liam’s body. Liam was charged and jailed after admitting to punching and shaking his 2-day-old daughter Luna because she “would not stop crying.” Luna died three days later as a result of brain injuries. He was sentenced to life in prison for the murder.

“[Liam] said he was responsible for all of the injuries that she had suffered, and he said that Luna had not settled down and he lost control,” the prosecutor said in court at the time. “In my submission, there is simply no explanation for the defendant’s [behavior],” Richard, who represented Liam in court, said at the time. “His actions were wholly and utterly out of character for him. The defendant will have a very long time to reflect upon his terrible [behavior].” During the trial, Richard read a statement from Luna’s mother. “Seeing Luna on life support in the hospital will last with me forever,” read the statement. “I can’t describe how that felt. I would not wish it upon my worst enemy.”

Many readers said they felt Liam got what he deserved for killing his daughter. “Justice was served! Unfortunately the helpless, precious little one died at the hand of one who should have been the Protector. Hope the Judge takes this baby’s tragic death into consideration & gives a light sentence for this ‘crime’ to the cellmate,” one reader commented. “I have always heard that there is honor among thrives/ prisoners, and that they detest baby killers, child molesters, mistreatment of old people, guess the killer got his due,” another wrote. “Justice was only served by his cellmate. The court system failed that child. He was a scumbag pos that deserved to die, and the court system only slapped him on the hand,” another added. “While I do not support murder, I do not believe 10 years is enough time to give someone who committed such a horrible crime. There are people serving more time for lesser offenses. I will just say KARMA IS A B***H,” another commented.
