"You’re a child murderer. You murdered a baby. You murdered my grandson because he cried.”

With those words, Donald Walter Hansen, the grandfather of 19-month-old Derek Hansen, began to describe for Lake Superior Court Judge Salvador Vasquez how difficult it’s been since David Steven Golub battered the child and caused his death last year. “There’s so much day-by-day that we deal with because of your actions,” Hansen said.

Golub, 25, of Highland, admitted he violently shook the toddler and slammed his head into the floor multiple times because his crying angered and frustrated Golub. On April 2, Golub pleaded guilty to battery in exchange for a 40-year sentence and dismissal of other felony charges. Vasquez imposed the 40-year term."


IMO, 40 years is not enough.
