WICHITA, Kan. (AP) _ A Wichita man convicted of abusing an 18-month-old girl and placing her inside a trash bag while she was still alive is appealing his first-degree murder conviction.
Jonell Lloyd was convicted in 2008 in the death of Chavira Brown, who was beaten, tied up in plastic bags and left in the attic of his Wichita home. He was sentenced to 50 years in prison without possibility of parole for first-degree murder and another 10 years for child abuse.
He was caring for the girl while her mother had surgery. Testimony at his trial indicated Lloyd had beaten the girl after she woke up with wet pants.
KAKE-TV reported Wednesday Lloyd is claiming in his appeal that prosecutors did not prove his daughter's murder was premeditated.
