Man who punched his newborn daughter to death was killed in jail

22-year-old Liam Deane reportedly broke down and admitted to attacking his girl and killing her.


Liam Deane, 22, killed his newborn daughter in a horrific manner.

Deane’s wife went to sleep and he was left to take care of the baby girl who wouldn’t stop crying. He then turned aggressive and punched his daughter in the face. And as what he did wasn’t cruel enough, he started shaking and squeezing the 2-day-old without control.

Baby Luna was then rushed to the hospital, but doctors said she suffered “catastrophic brain injuries.” At first, Deane denied hurting his daughter, but as police questioned him, he broke down and admitted what he had done.

The killer father was then sent to prison where he was killed by the man he shared the cell with, 28-year-old John Westland, who was reportedly flanked by police officers before being presented in front of the court. 

A similar incident happened some few years later, in 2020, when a 26-year-old man, Shane Goldsby, found out that the man he shared the cell with was his under aged sister’s rapist. Goldsby begged to be transferred to another cell, but his requests were denied over and over again.

This young man was serving a sentence after stealing a Kelso police patrol car and directing the state highway patrol on a lengthy chase which ended up injuring a trooper. His stay at the prison, sadly, made him a murderer.

Goldsby claimed that convicted rapist Robert Munger bragged about the girls he raped, which Goldsby couldn’t stand. “He kept … giving me details about what happened and what he did. About the photos and videos of him doing this stuff, and it was building up,” Goldsby explained.

In one of the videos which Munger shared with the inmates was Goldsby’s sister. “I was like, ‘What the f—?’… This stuff doesn’t happen. You’re talking the same institution, the same unit, the same pod in the same cell as this dude. That’s like hitting the jackpot in the casino seven times,” Goldsby shared.

As the prison wouldn’t transfer him to another cell, Goldsby went mad and killed Munger by punching him 14 times and then stomping his head. Munger, who was 70 years old, died due to the injuries he sustained.

Goldsby was given 25 years in prison for killing his sister’s rapist. When he was taken to court, he apologized to Munger’s family. “I cannot imagine what it would be like to lose a loved one in this kind of way. To his wife and his whole family, I apologize. I am so sorry and I hope you are able to heal from what I caused,” he said.
