Who would kill a 10-month-old infant? Where has this world come to? =\ - April 30th 2009, 07:46 PM

"A Newark man accused of sexually assaulting and killing his girlfriend's 10-month-old daughter was in tears as he pleaded not guilty in a state court today, authorities said. With his family members attempting to console him with utterances of "don't cry" from the audience, Everett Sheppard, 22, entered the plea through public defender Sterling Kinsale, according to Paul Loriquet of the Essex County Prosecutor's Office.


In October, Sheppard was arrested and charged with beating and sexually assaulting 10-month-old Victoria Madison at his apartment at the Kemsco Village public housing complex on Cutler Street.
Assistant Essex County Prosecutor William Neafsey said the baby and her 2-year-old brother were left in Sheppard's care by their mother, Shelia Troutman, while she went to a Burger King restaurant on a Friday morning.
When Troutman returned, the baby was in cardiac arrest. The infant was rushed to University Hospital and pronounced dead soon after arrival, Neafsey said.
X-rays taken at the hospital indicated the child had been sexually assaulted, he said. Multiple fractures were found, including cracked ribs. Some of the wounds on her body were inflicted before the date of the assault, Neafsey added.
But it was the medical examiner's autopsy results that showed the baby died of blunt force trauma to the infant's head and body that led to murder charges, he said.
The child's mother, Sheila Troutman, has not been charged.
A grand jury indicted Sheppard on March 27 on charges of murder, felony murder, aggravated sexual assault and endangering the welfare of a child.
Attorneys from both sides are scheduled to meet with Superior Court Judge Peter J. Vazquez on May 26, Loriquet said. By then, all evidence is expected to be exchanged between attorneys."

Oh my god, that is horrible. Scary. (I'm from NJ, too, and definitely familiar with Newark.)

That's awful.

But I have to wonder.. have they even said he's guilty yet? That's what I hate about the news. It basically says it was him for sure.. without actually saying it.

As horrible as it is that that happened, I have to agree with YourNightmare. It's really not surprising. There are a lot of sickos in this world doing things like that all the time.

It should be a shock, but it's so common anymore that it doesn't have the effect on me that it used to. It's awful to hear of such things happening to a little baby, though. If he did do it, I hope he gets every bit of what he deserves.

It's disturbing to me because I live less than an hour away from where it took place.

I think this is horrible. However, as much as I've read stuff like this--I am not surprised.

How could someone have sex with an infant? They're defenseless and innocent! I hope that man rots in prison for the rest of his miserable life.

Wasn't a shock really ever to me, probably because I couldn't give a shit regardless of how often I heard it.
