Dude kills his toddler over broken X-Box

A man who killed his 17 month-old daughter in a rage over a broken Xbox has been sentenced to more than 20 years in prison.

Philadelphia prosecutors say 27 year-old Tyrone Spellman killed Alayiah Turman with at least five blows to the head when she pulled down his Xbox console. The force of the blows cracked the toddler's skull.

Spellman was convicted in January of third-degree murder and child endangerment. » Article here

Rule #1 - No stories about babies getting killed on your blog. Very sad way to start the morning.

Then just read it in the afternoon. But yes, it IS a sad way to start the morning. It makes me want to take the dude's xbox and hit him over the head with it.

Susan -- yeah, the "shock" factor is a bit much with this story.
