    I find it hard to believe that a sweet and beauitful little girl was abused so bad over a video game. A child is a gift from god to be loved not abused.by someone that can't control his anger. I find it hard to believe that this was the first display of anger shown by this person and the mother left this baby alone with him. His answer to the police was like no big deal.....just hugged her until she quite breathing......threw her in the crib and maybe she hit her head. She is in a better place now and god will give her the hugs and love she deserves. Huett will probably stay in jail for 2 to 3 years before going to court.....that seems to be what is happening to the other ones in jail for murder. He will wish he could have stayed in jail forever because when he goes to prison it wan't be good.

    Children having children, what a shame Jordan wasn't given a chance for a better life. Adoption with a stable family would have prevented this. Alecia could have had a chance to finish her childhood and become a responsible adult.

    The sadness and anger over this situation is tremendous. A VIDEO GAME?!!!

    I can't help but wonder why a mother would leave her child alone with someone such as this. If he would lose his cool over a video game, no one will be able to convince me that the guy does not frequently fly off the handle and the mother of this poor child has most likely been mistreated as well.

    I realize that the mother is only 18 but for goodness sakes.... common sense would tell any mother that if the man is out of control then he needs to be gone with. You certainly do not go off and leave this guy alone with your child.

    Before someone comments that I don't understand what it's like to be a single mother in an unhealthy relationship let me save you the time and trouble... Yes I do. If a parent (yes... women can be abusive too) does not have enough self-respect to get themselves out of such a mess then they should at least have enough guts to protect their child.

    RIP little Jordan.

    Makes me sick to think this was all about a video game. This guy is one huge piece of hockey but much worse! If the bed moved a few inches from throwing the child thats enough damage alone not to mention all the other things he did to her. Its so horrible to think a person could actually do that but he'll be shown how a real beatening feels from a bigger person in prison with all the daddys who would love to be close to their children.....I cannot believe he is a father...wow!!!!! What if this were his children beat to death from another man?????? God bless the families involved. RIP Baby Jordan Evans
