Texas – Houston – Four year old dies from rape that her mother facilitated.

This is a heinous murder.  I can’t imagine the pain that this little girl must have felt.  This animal should be disemboweled.  That would be comparable.  In all reality, this man should be put down.  Plain and simple.  This little girl could not have been screaming in pleasure.  So, during this murder, there must have been a twisted amount of pleasure that this man was deriving from the murder of this poor child.  Did he look in to her eyes?  My skin crawls with the amount of vileness that this subhuman did this act with.

The mother should never be allowed around children again.

This is a man that is guilty.  You don’t get herpes from casual contact.  There has to be something more than a toilet seat

Man guilty of raping 4-year-old who later died:

A Houston jury this afternoon found Lucas Coe, 28, guilty of raping his girlfriend’s 4-year-old daughter shortly before her June 2009 death.

Jurors in visiting state District Judge Doug Shaver’s court deliberated Coe’s fate for three and a half hours before convicting him of super aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Prosecutors argued the former handyman spent weeks babysitting his girlfriend’s children, then raped the pre-schooler as other children swam in a backyard pool.

“He’s not going to go right in there and rape her,” Assistant Harris County District Attorney Colleen Barnett said in closing arguments. “He’s going to groom her.”

In a whisper to jurors, Barnett said Coe worked to lure the child, then cleaned up the crime scene.

“That little girl probably bled everywhere,” Barnett said.

Coe stood silently as the verdict was read. After hearing the decision, Coe sat and shook his head at his family members, who sobbed.

Coe’s lawyers had argued that the girl suffered vaginal trauma from of a straddle fall.

Coe’s attorney, Rick DeToto, pointed to testimony that Emma Thompson’s vaginal area had abrasions consistent with a fall.

Coe faces a maximum punishment of life in prison as jurors begin the punishment phase of the trial Wednesday. Because of the heightened charge, Coe will serve every day of whatever sentence the jury hands down.

Prosecutors said Emma died from abdominal trauma, including a severed pancreas, at Memorial Hermann The Woodlands Hospital on June 27, 2009.

In the weeks before the girl’s death, Coe was dating her mother, Abigail Young, a former registered nurse. Young was sentenced in July to 20 years in prison for failing to protect her child.

The girl died with more than 70 bruises on her body and a vaginal tear.

“She was dying a slow, painful death due to blunt force trauma to her abdomen,” Barnett said.

She noted that the girl and her mother were diagnosed with genital herpes, a sexually transmitted disease, weeks before the death.

DeToto had argued that the disease could have been transmitted by casual contact with Coe or Young.

The doctor who discovered the child had genital herpes a month before she died notified Texas Child Protective Services.

Prosecutors said Young lied to investigators about whether Coe had been living with her and babysitting the girl.

Coe was not charged in Emma’s death. Barnett told jurors Coe was prosecuted for the super aggravated charge rather than murder because it carries a potentially stricter punishment.

      Too expensive. I bet that if you auctioned off a position on a 10 man squad to put a bullet in him, you could make some money and then the other kids could potentially have a life. Have the firing squad get their own bullets and weapons. It would be no cost at all. The mother is gone too and rightfully so, but that doesn’t deter the fact that their little worlds will never be the same.

    This is not a harsh enough sentence for him or her mother! The man should have a painful death and not sure about the mom, definately never to be around a child ,EVER!!It was murder, I don’t care what the”law” says. Just cried ,to see her sweet innocent little face.An animal takes better care of the young around it, even if it is not their own!!

      I completely agree. My skin crawled reading this story. It really made me angry that they gave him so light of a sentence. This animal should be put down. Not for HIS sake, but for OURS- for the baby and the other kids. I believe that when we don’t punish the criminals and leave open wounds with the families or loved ones, WE, are committing another crime against the families and communities. When we create these secondary “victims”, they become potential perpetrators. Not all. But even if we create 1 other criminal, then that is one too many. I believe that it is much more. People exact vengeance in a lot of different ways. Most we never hear of. People become drunks and drug addicts or are in other ways no longer any good to their families and those people suffer. When JUSTICE is not JUST, then society becomes more base. Look around you. Tell me what you see. Is less justice and more empathy and poo pooing something that has caused our society to be better? OR do you smell the decay, as I do?
