Baby killer gets six years in jail


A man from Lanaken in Limburg has been sentenced to six years in jail after killing his baby by shaking it to death.  It’s believed the baby was crying when the father took drastic action resulting in the child’s death.

The incident happened last July. The month of the two-month old baby has welcomed the verdict saying she will now be able to put this behind her, but adding that the sentence could never be long enough: “It’s a kind of justice, but six years is far too short.  Life wouldn’t be long enough.  Nothing can bring back my child.”
