Man drowned daughter in toilet
Friday 17 April 2009
A schizophrenic was sentenced to 100 years in prison in America for drowning his eight-year-old daughter in a toilet.
DuPage County prosecutors said Neil Lofquist, of Chicago, claimed his daughter Lauren "was evil and it is what God intended".
They said he choked her, drowned her and stabbed her in the neck in March 2006.
The 43-year-old pleaded guilty but mentally ill to first-degree murder. A charge of predatory criminal sexual assault was dismissed.
Defence lawyer Jeffrey York said Lofquist was taking medication and understood the court proceedings. He said prison officials would decide what medical treatment Lofquist will receive.
Lofquist's ex-wife, Lisa Wilson, read a statement in court saying Lauren's death caused her unimaginable pain.
