HMP Leeds 'murder': Dead inmate had killed baby daughter

HMP Leeds 'murder': Dead inmate had killed baby daughter”

Fellow inmate John Westland, 28, was charged with Deane's murder, appearing in front of the Leeds Magistrates' Court.

Deane had been given a life sentence and was told he would serve a minimum of ten years in prison.

Another prisoner has been charged with murder after the body of Liam Deane, 22, was found HMP Leeds on Sunday.

Flanked by a dock officer and two police officers, he spoke only to confirm his name and date of birth, the Huddersfield Daily Examiner reported.

He was remanded into custody until a hearing on Thursday.

A court heard that Deane had squeezed and punched Luna after losing his temper.

"He said he was responsible for all of the injuries that she had suffered and he said that Luna had not settled down and he lost control", added Michael Smith, the prosecutor during Deane's trial, according to The Sun.

"Luna suffered an assault at the hands of one of the people who was responsible for her care and wellbeing".

Deane had initially told the baby's mother, Karen Bissett, 21, that she had fallen, but broke down when interviewed by police.

Deane had admitted to punching and shaking the two-day-old infant because "she would not stop crying", The Mirror reports.

Luna died in hospital three days after the brutal attack from "catastrophic brain injuries".

Richard Wright, QC, representing Deane, said there was no explanation for his client's behaviour. "I would not wish it upon my worst enemy".

'She was crying. You yourself were no doubt stressed and exhausted but you lost your temper'.
