    I hope the New Mexican continues to follow this story, I want to know what happens to this guy. Not much, would be my guess. Judge will feel sorry for him, he's just a poor anger management case and it's not his fault he has a hot temper and can't control himself... You can bet the guy has no sense he's done anything wrong, people like this are completely divorced from reality. He'll get a three year sentence, suspended, and have a new girlfriend within six months. Meanwhile this ten year old girl's life is completely changed, and she's without her mother. Hell, they'll probably give her to him!

    First of all my heart goes out to this child. What a horrible experience and remembrance for her to have to live with. My mind questions, why didn't any of the friends who were present do anything to stop the beating? Granted it sounds like this guy was in a mind set of acting like an uncontrolable animal, but if there were several others present it seems something could have been done. I don't know, obviously I wasn't there. This poor girl suffered horribly during the beating and the few days afterward, may God bless her with eternal rest and bless her daughter for a new beginning that can help erase the horrible memory enough for her to have a good life.

    I hope the child can be relocated and allowed to start a new life without such monsters in it.
