A diabolical brute from California has been arrested for savagely beating to death his girlfriend's four-year-old daughter, who had Down Syndrome.
According to a press release from the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department, on Tuesday night 24-year-old Adam Hughes was babysitting his girlfriend’s children at their home in the 10000 block of Kernwood Court in Rancho Cucamonga when four-year-old Kylee Willis 'angered' the ruthless savage by interrupting him.
The sheriff’s department wrote that the 5-foot-11, 220-pound Hughes assaulted the special needs toddler and then put her to bed.
When he went to check on Kylee several hours later, he found her unresponsive. By that time, the toddler's fingers and lips had turned blue.
The terrorist then called his girlfriend and the girl’s mother, Corinne Blake, who dialed 911 just before 8pm.
Paramedics transported the four-year-old victim to San Antonio Medical Center, and from there she was airlifted to the Loma Linda University Medical Center to be treated for severe head trauma.
Kylee spent several days on life support and succumbed to her injuries on Friday 'as a result of the injuries caused by the brute,' according to the press release.
Both the killer and Blake were initially arrested on a charge of willful cruelty to a child, but after Kylee's death, the boyfriend was slapped with an additional charge of murder.
He is currently being held without bond pending his next court appearance scheduled for Tuesday.
Blake, meanwhile, was released on Thursday after posting bail.
According to her Facebook page, Blake works as a cashier and has four children: two boys and two girls. She and the monster have been dating for two years and got engaged in May of last year.
