    Thanks for all the support posted here. This was my little cousin. I urged all young ladies to be careful with whom you leave your little ones with, especially these sorry, non-working males who doesn't care about you or your child, just someone to lay their own non-working behinds.

    The person responsible should suffer the same pain for 6 months that I am sure this little girl suffered and suffer the exact same kind of death. And don't put them in prison on death row for 80 years! Justice should be swift and as painful for them as it was for their victims. Once you take another life, you give up your right to live. Specially that of a small baby girl.

    This is horrible. I think the death penalty is appropriate for the one(s) responsible for this!

    The person or person who caused this should get the death penalty
