Toddler's Death Ruled A Homicide

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Louisville Police are treating a toddler's death as a homicide after a coroner ruled she died from multiple blunt force trauma.
Police say 20-month-old Christina Lopez died shortly after paramedics rushed her to Kosair Children's Hospital two weeks ago.
They say her mother's boyfriend called 911 saying she was
unresponsive.
Police have handed the investigation over to the commonwealth's
attorney.
Investigators say they won't make any arrests until after a grand jury decides whom to indict.

    Here will go again! Another baby killed at the hands of a boyfriend! When are lawmakers going to make tougher laws for these no goods who are killing our children? I'm afraid, not until it's one of their own! The average for killing a child is 5 years for a child and they will be out in 2! That should be a crime itself. What lawmakers are saying by their silence is that a child's life is worth only 2 years. When, in fact, it should be the death penalty! Because anyone who would kill an innocent child, will kill anyone and is of no good use to society! Wake up lawmakers!
