Dad pleads not guilty in 1-year-old daughter's murder (Indianapolis, Indiana)

For the last couple of decades, mothers have been increasingly guilt-tripped/brainwashed into father "involvment" by the fathers rights crowd and their allies. We're told that Children Must Have a Daddy No Matter What!, with no attention paid to whether the father in question is a decent human being who has made a commitment to the mother and the family. The end result is that casual boyfriends/sperm donors/one-night stands have been granted way too much importance.

The end result is too often like this. A short-tempered evil little sh** is either prodded into and/or demands "involvement"--only to kill the child.

Dad is identified as WAYNE BRADSHAW.

INDIANAPOLIS - An Indianapolis father charged in the death of his 1-year-old daughter pleaded not guilty in court on Wednesday.

Wayne Bradshaw's daughter was found not breathing last week on the city’s east side, officials said.

Officers with the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department were called to the 2300 block of North Rural Street around noon last Friday on the report of a child not breathing.

Bradshaw, 25, reportedly launched an attack on his daughter because she had soiled her diaper, officials said.

Police said he reportedly placed the child in a tub of hot bath water.

"She had bruising on her thighs, she had bruising on her chest area. She had bruising to her internal organs. Just marks all over her body. That Friday morning was a very tragic morning for her," Deputy Prosecutor Kristina Korobov said.

Bradshaw was in the home at the time and told police that his daughter had fallen and was not breathing.

The 1-year-old girl was taken to Methodist Hospital where she was pronounced dead soon after arriving to the hospital.

Court documents revealed that the girl died of homicidal violence due to blunt force trauma.

The child's mother, Earlynn Jelks, was overwhelmed with grief outside of court. She allowed her daughter to visit with her father because she wanted him to be a part of her life.

Bradshaw was charged with murder, battery and neglect of a dependent, officials said.

His case is set for a jury trial on Oct. 7.
