Indiana Babysitter Admits He Killed Crying Infant with a ‘Backhand’ to the Head While High on Synthetic Marijuana, Buried Body in Shallow Grave

CANNANNEW REPORT

Law & Crime report this awful story. The scourge of synthetic cannabis is, we’d suggest, as important an issue to deal with as pharmaceutically produced opioids. An Indiana man admitted to killing the 11-month-old girl he was babysitting before disposing of her remains in a shallow grave in the woods. Justin Miller, 37, formally pleaded guilty to the murder of Mercedes Lain, admitting that he struck the baby multiple times because she would not stop crying, The Associated Press reported. Miller appeared in Starke County Circuit Courthouse on Monday where he reportedly admitted that he was at his girlfriend’s apartment watching Mercedes in mid-August when he grew frustrated that the baby would not stop crying. Confirming that he was high on synthetic marijuana at the time of the assault, Miller reportedly told the court that he struck Mercedes “a couple of times” to get her to stop crying late on the evening of Aug. 12 or early Aug. 13. A copy of the plea agreement obtained by South Bend ABC affiliate WBND reportedly said that Miller “backhanded” Mercedes “in the head” causing the child to hit the wall. Miller reportedly said he realized Mercedes was dead on the morning of Aug. 14, when he got out of bed and “rolled a joint of synthetic” before seeing Mercedes’ lifeless body. Then he went to a neighbor’s house and borrowed money for gas, then grabbed the baby’ body and buried her in a remote wooded area in Starke County, the report added. Miller’s attorney reportedly negotiated the plea agreement with the Starke County Prosecutor’s Office, which stipulates that the final decision in Miller’s sentencing will be at the discretion of the court. If the presiding judge accepts the terms of the deal, Miller will face a minimum of 45 years in prison and a maximum of 65 years in prison.…
