Evil, Just Evil

There are some stories that are just so vile, and so shocking that there is little or nothing that can be said. No clever remark or in depth analysis is necessary because the actions are just so unfathomable that they deserve nothing more than a one word description EVIL.

A father has been sentenced to a paltry minimum of 18 years and nine months in prison for beating his two-year-old daughter to death in an attack he had hoped would make her a lesbian..........

Donovan Lamar Haynes, 23, was sentenced in Flint, Michigan last week after pleading no contest to second-degree murder for the 2011 killing of Ti'Airra Woodward.

A pre-sentence investigation report claimed Haynes had beat the girl to turn her gay in hope that she would avoid men like him, who had a history of treating women like trash.

Haynes' attorney Elbert Hatchett called him 'deranged' before Genesee Circuit Judge Joseph J. Farah sentenced him to serve a concurrent five-to-15-years in prison for first-degree child abuse.

Proud of yourself? Donovan Haynes smirks as he is escorted into the courtroom in Flint, Michigan for sentencing. He was given at least 18 years for beating his toddler daughter to death three years ago

The attorney added that Haynes needs to undergo extensive psychological counseling while in prison.

Haynes savagely bit and beat Ti'Airra in July 2011 and she was found unresponsive in the basement of Haynes' mother's Flint Township home.

The little girl was rushed to hospital but was pronounced dead at Hurley Medical Center.

Killed: Two-year-old Ti'Airra Woodward was covered in bite marks when she was found unresponsive in 2011

Initially authorities said that it appeared she had died from a blunt force trauma to the abdomen and the medical examiner's report said the toddler died of internal bleeding from a lacerated liver.

After her tragic death, Flint Police Chief George Sippert said she was the youngest homicide victim he could remember in 25 years with the department.

'It's extremely tragic and I know it affects a lot of members of the police department that are investigating this case,' he said.

Ti'Airra's mother, Nakeesha Woodward, left the court in tears but returned to the courtroom in time to hear her former boyfriend's sentence.

'I lost a child,' she sobbed as she asked the judge for the strictest punishment.
