Doesn't get much more insane than this, and over child support. Anyone else hope to see the death penalty for this? The world has gone insane!

(8/15/2006)
A former airline baggage handler threw his 4-year-old daughter off a cliff because he didn't want to pay child support, a prosecutor told jurors Tuesday during an impassioned closing argument in the man's murder trial.

Deputy District Attorney Craig Hum urged jurors to find Cameron Brown, 47, guilty of first-degree murder in the November 2000 death of Lauren Sarene Key.

Hum reviewed the evidence for more than two hours, contending it was no accident that Lauren fell 120 feet from Inspiration Point in Rancho Palos Verdes.

"It brings us to one horrifying, inescapable conclusion," Hum said. "This man threw his 4-year-old daughter off a cliff to her death."

Brown is charged with one count of murder and the special circumstance allegations of murder while lying in wait and for financial gain. He has pleaded not guilty and could face life in prison without parole if convicted.

Defense attorney Pat Harris has said the child slipped and fell, and that Brown was a loving father. He was expected to make his closing argument later Tuesday.

The motive for killing Lauren was threefold, Hum argued. Brown didn't want to pay about $1,000 a month in child support; sought revenge against the girl's mother, Sarah Key-Marer, whom he despised and never married; and protested his wife's intention to seek custody of Lauren, Hum said.

"Nasty, vindictive and spiteful," Hum said of Brown, who sat stonefaced watching the prosecutor.

Hum repeatedly called Brown a liar, saying the defendant had given varying accounts to investigators about what had happened in the moments before Lauren died. Lauren's physical injuries weren't consistent with the defense contention the girl has accidentally fallen, the prosecutor said.

In addition, no children's footprints were found near the edge of the cliff, only adult-sized imprints, Hum said.

"She didn't fall off, she was thrown," Hum said.

He also dismissed Brown's contention that Lauren had led her father on a hike to the cliff that had no fences or barricades. Hum said the girl was always careful and cautious wherever she went.

At least three witnesses who saw Brown and Lauren testified it was the father who was ahead of his daughter, Hum said.

"There is no way the defendant's story is true," Hum exhorted. "No way. She was 4!"

Brown was tried three years ago, but a mistrial was declared after a jury deadlocked on the severity of the crime. Some jurors favored a first-degree murder conviction, while others voted for second-degree murder or manslaughter.

numSlides of totalImages Los Angeles police Tuesday disarmed a woman who was waving a knife while holding a 4-month-old girl, authorities said.

Malika Johnson, 33, was arrested about 8:40 a.m. near Seventh and Hope streets in the Westlake district, Lt. Paul Vernon said. She was booked for endangering a child.

"The baby girl was not hurt, and appeared to be well cared for, but she was taken to a hospital for examination as a precaution," Vernon said.

The girl will be placed in the custody of the county's Department of Children and Family Services.

"The child's identity was not clear, as the woman would not speak," Vernon said. "Detectives have released photos of the girl to aid in identifying her, and for anyone to come forward with information about the mother and child's recent history."

Johnson has been arrested on suspicion of child endangerment at least three times since 2004, Vernon said.

Anyone with more information about the case was urged to call the LAPD hotline at (877) LAPD-24-7.

How a human being could do this to their daughter is __________ there isnt much you can really say except be repulsed by his actions...Why some people are allowed to have kids is beyond me.

This is exactly why we need come kind of test that either allows you yo or not to have children.
Sorry but this whole natural part of life crap is over, most do not deserve to have children,drive cars or even receiving money!

It´s this evil actings from people that makes these goverments come up with all these types of laws that makes our lives even more controlled.
The people can to be honest just fuck themselves, they are the ones bringing all sorts of trouble to themselves.

I hope this idiot gets killed over and over again.

Truth doesn´t control you, you control it...

yeah guys ,what do you do about this type of human garbage..?

Certain problems come to mind with serious crime..

(1) Meth,drugs ect..
(2) uncontrolled parenting,allowing young minds to develop without harmony and good opportunity
(3) problematic genes passed on from parents eg (psychopathy)

just my take
so the problem is easy to solve...um probably not and probably never ,who knows..
btw guns are commonly involved in many crimes,but they arent the problem

or of course, the possibility that what he says is true.

hmm, nah surely not, he was found guilty after all, and we all know the courts never f*ck up.

So, im to believe he was so shallow that 1000 dollars a month would cause him to murder his daughter, yet in the same breath they say part of the excuse is that he didnt want to give up custody of his daughter.

eh, something doesnt wash with that....as a father myself.

This is all judging at this point...but the facts are both defense and prosecutors build the picture they want the jury to see..it goes without saying really,but a 4 year old would be protected by a loving father and any father who allowed imminent danger to clearly unfold in such a dangerous area is deserving of a lot of suspicion...He loved his 4 year old with no sense of danger to fall into this situation..how convenient ,thats what it sounds like to any common sense onlooker..
