Racine man sentenced to 30 years for abusing kill to death

by

RACINE, WI (WTAQ) - A Racine man will spend the next 30 years in prison for abusing a litte resulting in death.

Andre O. Knighton abused her so severely her skull was fractured and her pancreas was torn in half.

Knighton told the judge he takes full responsibility and said there is no justification for what he did to two year old Donnasia Jackson.

Prosecutors said Knighton slammed the little girl to the floor 12 to 15 times when she soiled herself, then began to fuss. He said he was suffering from a migraine at the time.

The little girl was killed in 2011 while her mother was at work.

Knighton had pleaded guilty to first-degree reckless homicide charges.
