Life for dad who killed his baby girl at Xmas
A CRUEL father who brutally murdered his six-month-old daughter on Christmas Day has been jailed for life.
Lee Parker, 33, repeatedly struck baby Aya’s head against a bathroom door and wall in a fit of temper after drinking heavily on Christmas Eve and taking drugs.
Parker (above), of Kingswood, South Gloucestershire, was told he would serve at least 15 years and two months after admitting murder at Bristol Crown Court.
Mr Justice Phillips said Parker had carried out a “sustained and murderous attack”.
“That initial bout of violence broke Aya’s jaw, but it is not clear how you did that,” he said.
“At about 1am, you carried out further attacks of extreme violence, smashing her head against the bathroom door and wall.
“Aya suffered catastrophic head injuries, including skull fractures in several places.
“Such severe injuries are rarely seen in a child as young as Aya.” BEING born in September increases your chances of getting into Oxford or Cambridge universities by 12 per cent
