Sicko ‘sexually abused and killed’ his ex-girlfriend’s 14-month-old baby girl

A SICKO has been accused with sexually abusing and killing his ex-girlfriend’s 14-month-old baby girl.

Jacob Britton Emmendorfer, 27, was charged on Monday in the death of Meilani Marie Hart, MLive reported.

The baby girl was killed in a Milham Meadows Apartment in Portage, Michigan, on August 12.

The toddler was found unresponsive when first responders arrived at a residence at approximately 10pm, according to police.

She passed away just hours later, after being transported to Bronson Methodist Hospital.

Jacob Britton Emmendorfer, 27, was arrested and charged.

Hart's death was determined a homicide by the Kalamazoo County Medical Examiner's Office.

Police have revealed that Emmendorfer - the estranged boyfriend to the deceased baby's mom - has been charged with criminal sexual conduct, child abuse, and open murder.

Kalamazoo County Prosecutor Jeff Getting told the Michigan news outlet: "I’m grateful we are able to authorize charges in this tragedy.

14-month-old Meilani Marie Hart was killed in August.

"It’s important, however, to realize that a person is presumed innocent until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt and we’re just at the beginning of a long process in the criminal justice system."

Emmendorfer was first arrested on Friday, charged Monday, and was denied bond.

According to public Michigan arrest records, Emmendorfer arrested in 2016 for non-payment of child support.
