An evil father has punched to death his two day old daughter after she “would not stop crying”.
The Court heard that violent Liam Deane, 22, subjected the tiny baby, named Luna, to the horrific attack after losing his temper just days after her birth.
Baby Luna was only two days old when she was left in the arms of her father while her mum, Karen Bissett, 21, went upstairs to get some sleep.
Deane reportedly lost his temper during the night when Luna continued to cry, Leeds Crown Court heard.
Prosecutor, Michael Smith said the injuries found on the baby included injuries to her brain, body and face.
Mr Smith said: “He said he was responsible for all of the injuries that she had suffered and he said that Luna had not settled down and he lost control.”
The court heard Luna was born on July 9 this year.
The next day she was told by Deane that Luna had fallen.
An ambulance was called after Deane had spoken to his mother, saying the baby was having difficulty breathing and had fallen and hit her head.
Paramedics arrived and noticed her face was badly swollen and bruised.
Luna was rushed to Leeds General Infirmary where she died in intensive care on July 14 just three days after the attack.
A doctor concluded Luna who was born on July 9th 2017 had died after suffering head trauma, leaving her with “catastrophic brain injuries.”
Deane who broke down when interviewed by police, admitted he was responsible for attacking the baby.
He admitted punching Luna to the face, squeezing her body and arms and shaking her.
