10-Week-Old Baby Killed By Own Dad?! Ruthless Maryland Father Admits Sexually Abusing And Killing Own Daughter
Babies are considered blessings and hearing stories of abuse on these little angels are surely breaking everybody's hearts. But how would you feel if you read the news that a baby is abused and killed by his or her own father just like the case of Aleah Thompson, who was killed in 2015?
Just a year ago, the world was shocked when reports about a 10-week-old baby girl named Aleah Thompson, who died because she was sexually and physically abused by her own dad, surfaced. What was more appalling was the fact that the mother did nothing to stop the harming on the baby.
On Monday, however, Aleah Thompson's 24-year-old father Robert Davidson admitted the crime of sexually abusing and killing his own 10-week-old daughter in court. According to Daily Mail, Davidson pleaded guilty and was charged of sex abuse of a minor and first-degree child abuse resulting in death.
Aside from Davidson, the 10-week-old baby girl's mom Lorena Thompson, 22, pleaded guilty to neglect of a minor. Lorena was sentenced to a five-year probation. Washington Post reported. Davidson, on the other hand, could reportedly face up to five decades of imprisonment.
Meanwhile, Lorena Thompson and Robert Davidson were arrested in August of last year. The arrest came two months after the Aleah's death in June of the same year.
Based on the report released by the Montgomery County Police Department, Davidson called 911 at 7:18 p.m. on June 23, 2015, saying his 10-week-old baby was not breathing and unresponsive, NZ Herald notes. Aleah was then rushed to a nearby hospital but because of her injuries, she was airlifted to MedStar Georgetown University Hospital in Washington D.C., where she died three days after her hospital admission.
The death of the 10-week-old baby girl was due to multiple blunt force injuries. As per the baby's autopsy report, Aleah Thompson suffered a broken collarbone and had 34 rib fractures. The baby also has some injuries in the head, spine and eyes.
Robert Davidson is set to be sentenced in February. His original charges are second-degree murder, first-degree child abuse resulting in death, first-degree child abuse resulting in severe physical injury, neglect of a minor, sexual abuse of a minor, and second-degree sex offense.
As part of the plea deal, prosecutors ditched the second-degree murder count against Davidson. As for the sexual abuse charge, it has not been revealed as to why Aleah's dad was charged with sexual abuse.
