Poughkeepsie, New York (The Weekly Vice) - William C. Tate Jr, a 29-year-old Wassaic man plead guilty Thursday to sexually abusing and then brutally murdering his 3-month-old daughter.
According to the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office, 29-year-old Robin Tate came home to find her child in agony. She immediately rushed her to Sharon Hospital, located in Connecticut. The infant, Reese Tate, died February 4th, shortly after midnight.
An autopsy revealed that the baby died of internal injuries including a broken rib, swelling of the brain, multiple contusions, and the tearing of a bowel from her stomach. There was also evidence of previous injuries including a broken collar bone and three broken ribs believed to have been inflicted on the child sometime in December. There was seminal fluid found on the baby's body and other evidence of sexual abuse was present.
Investigators say Tate was at home alone with the child at the time of the incident. He admitted to the allegations and plead guilty to charges of second-degree murder and aggravated sexual abuse. He is due in court June 25th. He faces a maximum sentence of 25 years to life in prison and will not be eligible for parole until 2040.
The Weekly Vice
We feature some seriously bizarre people here on The Weekly Vice, but few people manage to scrape the very bottom of the toilet like this vile piece of garbage. He deserves to sit bare assed on the hottest coal of hell - but in the meanwhile - there is still a sentencing hearing coming up.
Hopefully the judge presiding this case gets an earful from you - informing him/her that a minimum sentence for this baby raping thug would be inexcusable. Many states have a mandatory sentence of life in jail when a child rape results in death. Anyone who can keep us posted as the the progress of this case would be appreciated greatly.
