St. Tammany Parish deputies arrested a Mississippi man who they said killed a 2-year-old child by violently shaking her, allowing the girl's head to repeatedly strike the floor after she had a bathroom accident. The girl has been identified as 22 month old Rubie Boland.
Andrew Roberts, 20, of Kiln, Miss., was arrested and charged with one count of second degree murder, St Tammany Parish Sheriff Jack Strain said.
This is very similar to the Bossier Parish case of Lance Thamm, who is set to go on trial April 26th for the January 2008 murder of his 17 month old daughter.
