An Illinois father has admitted that he beat his toddler daughter to death with a belt. She was just four years old.

29-year-old Darrell A. Reynolds, on August 31st, told authorities during an interview “I just killed my daughter” and said he’d been beating her for roughly two years.

The young girl died after being transported to the emergency room unresponsive and with bruises and scabs covering most of her body .


Four-year-old Amarrah C. Reynolds’ cause of death was said to have “resulted from exceptionally brutal or heinous behavior indicative of wanton cruelty.”

He was arraigned Thursday in Macon County Circuit Court on a charge of first-degree murder. If convicted, he faces 20 years to life in prison. His next court date is set for September 28th.

The girl’s mother is due in court Friday the 16th in regards to the case.
