Psychologist Can't Explain Why He Beat Daughter to Death With Baseball Bat
You expect to read about a psychologist explaining in court why a defendant did something so gawdawful.
But in this case it was the psychologist himself who did something horrific in May 2011.
L.L. Brasier of the Detroit Free Press reports that Oxford Village psychologist Robert Kelly told an Oakland County Circuit judge on Wednesday that can't explain why he got up one morning and walked down the hallway to his daughter's room and beat her into a coma with a baseball bat as she slept.
The Freep reports his daughter Megan Robert, 20, died a few months later.
"I wish I could answer the question as to what would make a human being do what I've done," Kelly told Oakland County Circuit Judge Rudy Nichols before he was sentenced Wednesday to 20-30 years in prison for second-degree murder.
