A Bronx man was busted Sunday for beating his girlfriend’s 22-month-old daughter to death when she wouldn’t stop crying, police sources said.
“I knocked her in the stomach with my elbow,” Green said in a videotaped confession read at his arraignment on murder charges. “She had her eyes open, but she wasn’t breathing.”
The medical examiner said Sanaa suffered horrific blunt-impact wounds.
“The M.E. says the liver is really lacerated – the worst she ever saw,” one police source said.
Sanaa’s mother was not home at the time of the attack. Grandmother Lashawn Carter said she should have done more to save the child.
“I was trying to but I fell down,” Carter told a neighbor. “I wish it was me instead of her.”
