    MI - Convicted dog abuser (mom's BF) beats 10 month old severely

    Yeah it's always good to leave a convicted animal abuser around your 10 month old child...

    http://www.woodtv.com/dpp/news/local...by-beat-020612

    Donald Thomas Bayne
    23-year-old man was arraigned Monday on torture and first-degree child abuse charges after he allegedly beat the 10-month-old daughter of his girlfriend.

    She was seriously injured and her prognosis is not clear at this time.

    Bayne is on probation for a 2009 incident in which he shot and beat a dog to death.

    Another sad story that PROVES that those who would hurt an animal could also hurt a child. So so tragic. Prayers for that little girl.

    I spent a magical day with my 9 month old grandson. Who could imagine........

    Alleged child-torturer Donald Bayne arraigned, faces up to life in prison

    Donald Thomas Bayne faces up to life in prison if convicted of torturing a baby.

    The 23-year-old Bayne was arraigned Monday afternoon on that count and first-degree child abuse, a 15-year felony, for allegedly punching his girlfriend's 9-month-old daughter in the head, causing skull fractures and internal injuries.

    (snip)

    Fruitport Township Public Safety Director Ken Doctor said the man admitted to police that he hit the child in her head with a closed fist during a fit of rage when the child was crying. It wasn't clear how many times he hit the infant, Doctor said.

    (snip)

    The infant remained in critical condition at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids late Monday morning.

    This is the county where I live. I HOPE HOPE HOPE this child abuser/dog murderer does NOT plead and goes to trial!! And then I hope I get jury duty! I am due, it's been awhile. The people of Muskegon County don't appreciate baby beaters. I seriously would love it sit on this a-hole's jury.

    The article reports that it's his girlfriend, but his statuses report that he's broken up with / lost "Lacey" and he refers to her as his "friend" in his "please pray for them" posting. It's also apparent reading his statuses that he was often watching over this little one and others (around the same age?). That concerns me.

    Bayne's bond was set at $1 million. He is expected to be back in court for a preliminary hearing on Feb. 16.

    so, how's he online updating FB is right? Who had $100K to bail him out (if he is out) and what jail allows Internet access?

    The baby was hospitalized on Weds, Feb 1st.
    The comment about praying for Lacey (mom) and the baby was posted on Thursday Feb 2nd at 2pm.
    The article says he was arrested on Friday, Feb 3rd.


    It seems to me like he was really distraught over their breaking up. Hope it wasn't a "get even" sort of move.

    ETA: The video at said link reports that it's unknown if DB is the infants father or not.

    "The infant is in critical condition at Helen DeVos Children's Hospital in Grand Rapids. Tague said the damage is severe and likely long-lasting."

    "investigators believe he hit the girl repeatedly in the back of the head with his closed fist because she wouldn’t stop crying in her playpen."

    April 2013:

    Donald Thomas Bayne of Fruitport will spend 15 to 22 years of his life behind bars for torturing an infant he was babysitting – repeatedly punching a 10-month-old girl in the head while she lay in a playpen, fracturing her skull and causing internal injuries...

    Bayne pleaded no contest as charged March 20 to torture and guilty to being a second-time habitual offender, based on a 2009 conviction of animal killing or torture.
    Marietti also ordered Bayne to pay restitution of $236,628.92 to cover the victim’s ongoing medical expenses...


    Bayne had admitted hitting the baby repeatedly in the head with his closed fist “as hard as I would hit a man”...

    After the initial medical treatment to save her life, the child has undergone a series of surgeries that are expected to continue, as well as ongoing rehabilitation.

    Even if he serves the full 22.5 years, he'll only be in his 40s when he gets out. Plenty of times to start torturing and killing more animals and little children
    The judge at his sentencing said that he is a danger to the community.
