Teen convicted of murder after kicking toddler in the stomach, rupturing her liver
CAMBRIDGE, England (BBC) – A 19-year-old man has been convicted of murdering a 2-year-old girl after he kicked her so hard, the force ruptured her liver.
Amina Agboola died after being kicked in the stomach by 19-year-old Dean Harris last November.
Harris said he became angry when the toddler soiled herself multiple times while in his care.
According to the BBC, Harris initially told paramedics the child had fallen off the toilet.
However, he later wrote a confession letter to police.
Authorities say Amina’s liver was split in two by the kick and there was evidence of older injuries, including a broken arm, bruises to her face and bite marks on her cheek.
A jury recently convicted Harris of murder for the girl’s death.
