Man admits to bashing baby daughter to death

A British father has admitted to violently murdering his six-month-old daughter, in order to avoid standing trial for her death. The International Business Times reports that 33-year-old Lee Parker killed the little girl on Christmas Day, 2016, in a drunken rage. The manner in which the six-month-old infant died is absolutely heartbreaking, but it's fortunate that her killer is accepting his responsibility for what happened.

Parker admits to being highly intoxicated on the day of the incident -- after drinking two bottles of wine and part of a bottle of vodka. At sometime during his drinking binge, the British dad became enraged with the six-month-old infant, and started to bash her head against a bathroom door in his home. The helpless baby suffered fatal injuries, and emergency workers were unable to save her.

At the time of the incident, Parker told authorities that he had no recollection of what happened to his daughter. He admitted to being drunk at the time, and had simply blacked out. A drug test later revealed that the man had Cocaine and THC in his system as well.

This is a horrible tragedy that has left a family without their child, and now -- possibly -- a man without his life. Lee Parker will be sentenced on the 4th of July. It's possible that he could get a life sentence, but due to his admission in court, his punishment could be more lenient. It's hopeful that justice is served for this infant, who died by the hands of her own drunken father.
