Authorities said a man serving a life sentence for
murdering his two-day-old baby was found dead in his U.K.

Deane admitted to murdering his daughter, Luna, while her
mother was sleeping in their family home
in Wakefield, England, last July.
He reportedly lost his temper during the night he
subjected his daughter to a brutal attack. The baby died
in intensive care after suffering “catastrophic brain injuries”
from her father.
As a result, Deane was sentenced to life in prison and could
have served a minimum of 10 years.
Another inmate, John Westland, 28, was charged with Deane’s
murder in court on Tuesday and is being held in custody. It
remains unclear why Westland was originally admitted to jail.
