The Court of Cassation upheld a ruling issued by the Grand Criminal Court against a man who was sentenced to 12 years in prison for beating a three-year-old girl to death.
Last March, the Grand Criminal Court convicted the man of the felony of battery to death.
According to the court, the felon is the boyfriend of the victim’s mother. The crime happened in August 2021, when the victim beat the girl, while her mother was outside the house, to punish her for hitting her younger sister.
It was proven that the felon did not intentionally kill the little girl who fell to the ground and soon died before he was able to help her.
The official cause of the death was bleeding in the abdomen resulting from ruptured abdominal blood vessels.
